Andersen appeals conviction

Standard man serving 60 years for murder of sister-in-law

OTTAWA — Clifford A. Andersen, who was convicted of murdering his sister-in-law Deborah Dewey in Putnam County court, has appealed the verdict.

Andersen must submit his argument to the Appellate Court in Ottawa by Tuesday, Nov. 30. Then the prosecution will have until Jan. 4 to respond, if the timeline is kept.

Andersen, 68, of Standard was sentenced Aug. 24 to 60 years in prison for the murder. He also was found guilty of concealment of a homicidal death during his two-week trial in July. He received an additional concurrent sentence of five years in prison for that crime.

Andersen is being held at Stateville Correctional Center.
