In 2009 Marni Yang confessed to a murder that she did not commit. She confessed because the police had driven her son to the point of suicide.
For the past three years, the experts of the WMP Justice Review Team have been investigating the murder of Rhoni Reuter and her unborn child. Our experts have uncovered new evidence and forensic proof that Marni Yang did not commit this murder.
On October 1, 2019, Jed Stone filed a Post Conviction Petition in the Lake County Circuit Court on the legal grounds that Marni Yang is innocent. On October 2, 2019, a press conference was held in Chicago Illinois by Jed Stone and the investigators of the WMP Justice Review. Some of the evidence was presented which proves that Marni is innocent.
Soon an evidentiary hearing will be held and Marni will go back to trial. It is a trial that will cost $500,000 in legal fees and additional funds will be needed for further investigative efforts.
Marni’s father is no longer capable of paying for her defense. Without help, from people who still believe in justice, Marni will remain in prison for the rest of her life for a crime she did not commit! Please give your best gift now and help our team who have worked so hard to uncover the evidence of Marni’s Wrongful Conviction. #FreeMarniYang
