WAYNE CO., Ill. (WFIE) - Court records show Brodey Murbarger was in court Friday for a hearing.
They show a motion to reconsider was filed for his 50 year sentence, and now a new hearing is set for June 16.
Murbarger was convicted in October for the murder of 15-year-old Megan Nichols in Fairfield, Illinois.
Officials say Nichols went missing in 2014, and was considered a missing person until her remains were found in 2018.
Murbarger was arrested in 2020.
Shortly before sentencing Murbarger requested a new trial. That motion was denied.
