A third trial has been delayed for an Illinois man charged with the 1990 killing of a 9-year-old girl in Iowa. The trial of Stanley Liggins was scheduled to begin May 22, but his new attorneys asked a judge for more time to acquaint themselves with the case. The judge has scheduled a Jan. 3, 2018 status hearing to set new dates in the case.
The next re-trial of Stanley Liggins will not be held in the Quad Cities, instead it will be moved to Waterloo, in Black Hawk County. That was the decision Friday from District Court Judge Marlita Greve, granting the change of venue motion (see ruling below).
