Claiming that Ku Klux Klan members actually committed the murders, attorneys said they would soon file documents aimed at winning a new trial for convicted child-killer Wayne Williams. Twenty-nine children and young adults disappeared in a series of homicides that terrorized Atlanta a decade ago. Williams was convicted of two of the crimes and is serving two life sentences.
