Chester Weger waited nearly 60 years for parole. The Starved Rock murderer will have to wait another four months to argue for a fresh trip to the crime lab.
On Monday, special prosecutor Colleen Griffin, an assistant Will County state’s attorney, entered an appearance in the case. Weger, 81, still is challenging his 1960 conviction for murdering Lillian Oetting at Starved Rock State Park. Weger also confessed to killing Oetting’s two companions.
