COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – A newspaper report says the attorney for a man whose conviction in a Missouri sports editor’s slaying was overturned has filed a civil rights lawsuit in her client’s name. Kathleen Zellner alleges fabricated evidence in Ryan Ferguson’s case and a lack of a complete police investigation into the killing of Columbia Daily Tribune sports editor Kent Heitholt. The suit asks for actual damages of $75 million and compensatory damages of $25 million.
