Alan Beaman formally declared innocent in 1993 murder


A man who spent 13 years of his life in prison for a murder he says he did not commit, has been formally declared innocent.

Alan Beaman was convicted of killing Illinois State University student Jennifer Lockmiller, but his conviction was reversed by the Illinois Supreme Court in 2008. Two potential suspects that were previously unknown were indicated through DNA testing.

Beaman later applied for a declaration of innocence, which was approved Thursday.
