A southern Illinois woman goes on trial Tuesday for allegedly lying to police investigating the deaths of a young man and his girlfriend. 31-year old Candice Brown of Centerville is charged with two counts of obstruction of justice in the deaths of 22-year old Jacob Wheeler of Centerville and 17-year old Jessi Evans of Norris City. Brown allegedly told investigators her fiancee at the time, Danny Coston, was at home with her when Wheeler and Evans died. Coston was convicted of their murders last summer and is serving a 53-year prison sentence.
