The state has agreed to pay $350,000 to another of the six people wrongfully imprisoned for a 1985 southeast Nebraska murder, but three other lawsuits remain pending.
Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning announced the settlement
with Kathleen Gonzalez on Thursday. Last month, the state agreed to
pay Joseph White $500,000 in a similar settlement.
Three other lawsuits related to the rape and murder of 68-year-old Helen Wilson of Beatrice are pending. One of the six people who was exonerated by DNA evidence, Deb Shelden, has not sued the state.
The six were the first in Nebraska to be cleared by DNA evidence.
