Illinois man charged with murder in wife's death

When a murder occurs, investigators want to quickly find the culprit for several reasons.

While most investigators do an excellent job ensuring they have arrested the correct person, mistakes do happen. An Illinois man, charged with murder in connection with his wife's death, is likely hoping to prove that accusations against him are actually a mistake.
