Juan Rivera Trial Continues in Lake County

Testimony will continue today in the trial of a Waukegan man accused of raping and killing an 11-year-old girl. Yesterday after lawyers gave their opening statements in the trial of Juan Rivera, jurors in the Lake County Courthouse heard from half a dozen witnesses. This is the third time Rivera has been tried for the 1992 crime. WBEZ's criminal justice reporter Robert Wildeboer has an update.
