Livers Sues Cass Co. & State Claiming Confession Was Coerced

A Nebraska man who spent seven months in jail on murder charges he didn't commit is suing the state and cass county law enforcement.

Matthew Livers was charged in April 2006 with two counts of first degree murder for the shooting deaths of his aunt and uncle Wayne and Sharmon Stoke of Murdock.

Court records show Livers, who is mildly mentally disabled, was interrogated for eleven-hours before he falsely confessed to the murders.   Liver's attorney claims he was coerced to confess.

Charges were later dropped in December after a Wisconsin pair were charged for the murders stead.

Jessica Reid and Gregory Fester, have since been convicted and sentenced to life in prison.  We'll have more on this story as it develops.
