A lawyer who represented a 73-year-old woman who was convicted of murdering her husband is running for prosecutor.
Gwendolyn Harris says she’s circulating petitions to get her name on the ballot to run for State’s Attorney.
If she’s successful, she’ll be facing incumbent Dan Davis.
He’s been state’s attorney for 20 years and intends to seek another four-year term.
Harris has represented Hope Schreiner, who was convicted of the second-degree murder of her husband.
Harris also recently hired Sheila Prue as an investigator for her firm. Prue was Windham County sheriff until last month when she resigned and pleaded guilty to a variety of charges stemming from her using department money for personal expenses.
