ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Missouri Attorney General’s Office wants a Cole County judge who threw out the conviction of a St. Louis man imprisoned for two decades in a teenager’s dance hall slaying to reconsider that decision.

State prosecutors said that Anthony William’s appellate lawyer failed to include details about notes from a city prosecutor in his actual innocence petition.

The judge subsequently cited those notes as one of several examples of evidence never provided to defense lawyers at William’s 1995 murder trial that could have helped his defense.
