Illinois: Alton Logan is Free

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
[Alton] Logan walked out of Cook County Jail on Friday after a judge vacated his conviction in the murder of a security guard during a January 1982 robbery of a South Side McDonald's. The judge ordered a new trial, citing new evidence, including the words of two attorneys who testified in court this year that their client committed the murder.
