Cook County State’s Attorney Reexamining Double-Murder Conviction

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office said it is taking another look at the murder conviction of a man who said he was tortured by Chicago cops. After his 1997 arrest in a double-murder case, Jaime Hauad claimed the police beat him and threatened — if he didn’t confess — to cut off his toes. In December, an Illinois appellate panel asked Foxx’s office to re-examine the conviction.
