Twin Confesses To Committing Murder His Brother Was Arrested For
A 38-year-old identical twin has confessed to committing murder that his brother was locked up for reports The Chicago Tribune:
Karl Smith confessed to a murder that his brother, Kevin Dugar, has been in custody for since 2003.
“I’m here to confess to a crime I committed that he was wrongly accused of,” Smith testified moments after taking the witness stand.
His mother, Judy Dugar, cried as she listened from the courtroom gallery, while his brother, sitting at a table with his lawyer, wiped tears from his eyes.
But Cook County prosecutors questioned the stunning admission, telling a judge that Smith came forward only after an appeals court upheld his own conviction for attempted murder. He is serving a 99-year prison sentence for taking part in a home invasion and armed robbery in which a 6-year-old boy was shot in the head in 2008.
“He’s got nothing to lose” by taking the blame for his brother’s murder rap, said Assistant State’s Attorney Carol Rogala.
She also told Judge Vincent Gaughan that Smith’s confession didn’t “fit the independent eyewitness accounts of what happened.”
It is unclear when Gaughan will decide if Dugar should be given a new trial.
