‘Child Murders’ Retrial Sought

United Press International

Civil rights attorney William Kunstler filed a court petition today seeking a new trial for Wayne Williams, who is serving two life sentences for the so-called Atlanta child murders.

Kunstler said last week that prosecutors withheld information that could have affected the outcome of Williams’ trial. He said a possible Ku Klux Klan link in one of the 28 murders with which Williams, 24, was charged was never reported to defense lawyers.
