CHICAGO – A Chicago man who served 32 years in prison before DNA evidence overturned his conviction in the 1980 rape and murder of a 3-year-old girl faces a new murder charge.
Andre Davis was charged Thursday in the 2013 death of Jamal Harmon. The 53-year-old Davis is jailed without bond.
Davis was released from prison in 2012 after being declared innocent in the death of Brianna Stickle of Rantoul.
Prosecutors say the 19-year-old Harmon got into a dispute with Davis' nephew over money lost in a dice game. Assistant State's Attorney Robert Mack said the nephew shot and wounded Harmon, and that Davis later cut the man's throat and dumped his body in an alley.
In addition to the 1980 case, Davis has faced attempted murder, aggravated battery and weapons charges.
