Murder Conviction Tossed, New Trial Ordered In SIU Student’s Death
(Murphysboro, IL) — A southern Illinois judge is ordering a do-over in the case of a Southern Illinois University student who died after a fight back in 2014. The judge yesterday vacated Gaege Bethune’s murder conviction and ordered a new trial. A jury convicted Bethune back in June for murdering SIU student Pravin Varughese. Prosecutors say the two fought, Varughese ran, and later died from exposure in the woods. Bethune is free while the court sets a new trial date.
