(Waukegan, IL)  Attorneys for convicted murderer Marni Yang say they have more information that should lead to a new trial for their client. Yang was convicted in the 2007 shooting death of Rhoni Reuter and her unborn baby in Deerfield. The two women were said to be in a love triangle with former Chicago Bear Shaun Gayle when the murder took place. Yang has maintained her innocence since her conviction, and her attorney now says a witness has come forward saying Gayle confessed to the crime. Investigators and prosecutors said that Gayle fully cooperated with the investigation, and his movements on the day of the murder have been accounted for. Both sides are due in court on Tuesday.
