An Illinois appeals court has overturned a man's conviction for ordering the murder of a co-worker in suburban Johnsburg.
It took three trials to convict Mario Casciaro of murder by intimidation in the death of Brian Carrick, 13-years ago.
Another man, Shane Lamb, testified that he killed Carrick in a confrontation in a grocery store cooler.
But a lower court said was guilty because he sent lamb to confront Carrick over a drug debt.
The appeals court disagreed.
The prosecutor will appeal Thursday's decision to the state Supreme Court.
