Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2013

Chester Weger will remain in prison.

The Illinois Prisoner Review Board decided to leave the 74-year-old behind bars for his 1961 murder conviction for the death of Lillian Oetting.  Oetting was one of three women found killed in St. Louis Canyon at Starved Rock State Park.  Weger says he’s innocent.

Thursday’s decision was seven to seven with one member of the board absent.
