Claiming that Ku Klux Klan members actually committed the murders, attorneys said they would soon file documents aimed at winning a new trial for convicted child-killer Wayne Williams. Twenty-nine children and young adults disappeared in a series of homicides that terrorized Atlanta a decade ago. Williams was convicted of two of the crimes and is serving two life sentences.

The man convicted in the Atlanta child murders case asked a court in Jackson, Ga., for a new trial on grounds that prosecutors withheld evidence. Wayne Williams, convicted in 1982 of killing two young black men, was also linked by police to 20 of 27 other slayings of children and teen-agers. His attorney, Bobby Lee Cook, said police and prosecutors withheld a Ku Klux Klan member's taped confession that he helped to kidnap and kill about 21 of the victims, all of whom were black.
