MCLEAN COUNTY -- A civil lawsuit against the county has been dropped. Alan Beaman was released from prison five years ago. The Illinois Supreme Court reversed his conviction after he'd served 13-years for killing his girlfriend.

Beaman sued the county as well as the city of Normal. The county spent more than $500,000 defending itself in the case.
