New trial starts for 2014 Columbia stabbing suspect

Anthony Shegog’s new trial was scheduled to start Tuesday.

Shegog is the Columbia man who was convicted of stabbing Walter Lige to death behind a home near Hickman High School in 2014. That verdict was vacated in 2018 though, after a judge ruled his attorneys were ineffective.

Shegog was looking at a 30-year prison sentence before getting a new trial. He’s accused of second degree murder and armed criminal action.
