New Autopsy Results Could Change Murder Conviction

Posted by Warren Krech on June 10, 2013

(AP) – Is a man wrongfully in prison, because the former Boone County Medical Examiner messed up?

Jay Dix’s ruling that Wendy Wagnon died from suffocation led to the conviction of Jessie McKim and James Peavler in 1999.

Peavler died in prison, but now McKim has obtained sworn testimony from five pathologists who say Dix made the wrong diagnosis. They instead cite Wagnon’s death from a methamphetamine overdose. The group includes the current Boone County assistant medical examiner, who worked under Dix.

A Cole County judge is scheduled to hear an update in McKim’s post-conviction appeal Monday. Dix died in 2002.
