SCOIL set to decide on new trial for Decatur woman previously convicted of murder in 2019 later this year

The Illinois Supreme Court will decide on whether to allow a new trial for a Decatur woman convicted of killing her 19-month-old son in 2019.

An Assistant Appellate Defender told the state’s high court yesterday that Jessica Logan deserves a new trial because law enforcement and a DCFS investigator never read her Miranda rights before they had her reenact her son’s death in his bedroom.

Logan is currently held in the Logan Correctional Center for the murder of 19-month-old Jayden Comage; the Illinois Supreme Court could issue a decision this spring.
