Adams makes new confession in Dixon murder, police say
DIXON – A haggard and beaten down Byron Adams apparently wanted to come clean shortly after he was convicted Tuesday of killing a 35-year-old Dixon woman in 2009.
Adams, in an interview he requested with Lee County Assistant State's Attorney Peter Buh and Dixon Police Lt. Clay Whelan, claimed he had intended to rob, not kill, Margaret Atherton in her Dixon home on Sept. 11, 2009.
He recanted his initial statement that he had been having an affair with Atherton and had gone to her house that day to break things off when things quickly escalated.
