Correction for Saturday, February 15, 2014

Published: Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

Friday’s editions incorrectly reported that Judge Jeffrey O’Connor had, on Thursday, granted the request of Heidi Sheley to not be photographed during her testimony in the murder trial of her brother, Nicholas Sheley, in Rock Island County in May. In fact, that request had been granted earlier.

The ruling Thursday granted the request of lab technician Matthew Taylor to not be photographed during his testimony. He was the fifth such scheduled witness in the case to be excluded from visual coverage of the trial. Audio recordings of those witnesses will be allowed, however.

We regret the error and any confusion it might have caused.
