SYCAMORE, Ill. (Metro) -- The Seattle man accused of killing a seven-year-old Sycamore, Illinois girl back in 1957 is facing trial today.
Jack McCullough is charged with kidnapping Maria Ridulph while she was playing outside her home with friends.
Authorities suspect McCullough then killed the girl and dumped her body about 120 miles away from her home.
The former police officer was arrested in Seattle last year and extradited to Illinois.
He says he did not commit the crime.
