Coleman Evidence Could Be Made Public Today
WATERLOO, Ill. (KMOX) – Later today we could get a better look at the evidence that landed Chris Coleman behind bars for the rest of his life.
Judge Milton Wharton, who presided over the trial earlier this year, reportedly spent the day Wednesday deciding what information to make public and what to hold back.
With a priority on protecting surviving family members of murder victims Sherri Coleman and her two sons, Wharton indicated that members of the public will not see things like graphic photos of the bodies found inside the home in Columbia Illinois on the morning of May 5, 2009.
The idea isn’t popular with lawyers on either side of this case.
They worry it could taint future jury pools if Coleman is successful in winning a retrial.
