A Springfield attorney who represented an Oregon County man in a murder retrial is now faces charges of tampering with a witness in the case. Adam Woody represented Michael Amick in a retrial of a murder case in 2016. In 2011 Amick was sentenced to life in prison in the killing of his grandmother-in-law. Amick was granted a new  trial and during a  pre-trial hearing an inmate testified that another man confessed to him abut the murder. Record show the inmate received payments from Woody totaling $1,000 Woody has been charged with two counts of witness tampering and one count of perjury. Woody is scheduled to be in court later this month in Butler County.
