Trial date for 30 year old murder case finally set
DUPAGE COUNTY, Ill. (WRSP/WICS) —
A trial date has been set for the Champaign man accused of raping and murdering a 15-year-old girl more than 30 years ago.
63-year-old Michael Jones was arrested in September of 2015 for the murder of Kristy Wesselman.
Her body was found murdered in a wooded area near her home in Glen Ellyn in 1985.
The case went cold years ago until a DNA sample linked Jones to her death.
His trial has been set for January 23.
He's currently being held in the DuPage County Jail without bond.
