Man convicted of 'Mississippi Burning' killings is hospitalizedBreaking News
His brother, Jerry Killen, told The Associated Press that the 81-year-old had been hospitalized for complications from a severe leg injury he sustained in a logging accident in 2005.
"He's in the hospital," Jerry Killen said in a telephone interview Wednesday. "He's got everything wrong with him. It's them legs."
A tree fell on Killen while he was cutting wood last March, just months before he was convicted of three counts of manslaughter in the slayings James Chaney, Michael Schwerner and Andrew Goodman. He attended his trial in a wheelchair.
