A former prosecutor and all-Big Ten football star is accused of murdering his wife on Valentine’s Day in 2006.

Cory Lovelace, a mother of four, was found dead in her Quincy, Ill., home. An initial autopsy found the cause of death to be undetermined, but several experts have since determined it to be suffocation at the hands of another.

Now, Curtis Lovelace is accused of suffocating his wife. Quincy Police Department Chief Rob Copley said the break in the case came from a new detective’s fresh set of eyes. The detective saw new evidence that authorities didn’t give proper attention to back in 2006, Copley said.

Lovelace has married twice since the death of his first wife.

A trial date of Jan. 26 has been set for Lovelace, who is in jail on $5 million bond.
