PALATINE, Ill. -- One of the men convicted in the Brown's Chicken massacre says a witness lied about his involvement for money.
James Degorski and Juan Luna are serving life sentences for the murders of seven people at a Browns Chicken in Palatine in 1993.
Degorski is seeking a court hearing into new evidence.
His lawyer says the trial's key witness, Anne Lockett, implicated Degorski, only so she could split a $100,000 reward.
The jury was not told Lockett would be rewarded for a conviction.
The lawyer also accused police in Palatine of coercing Degorski's confession and the confession of others who were never charged.
Prosecutors have not responded to the hearing request.
