Wilson supports John McNeilThe Georgia Supreme Court is expected to decide in 2013 if Wilson
native John McNeil will receive a new murder trial. A good deal of
attention has been focused on McNeil's case in 2012. Family, friends
and civil rights advocates in both states contend McNeil is wrongly
imprisoned. McNeil was convicted in 2006 of shooting a man at his
home. McNeil supporters contend it was a case of self defense.
