Knoxville Horror News!

By David in TN

Today (Wednesday), the Knox County District Attorney General's office announced they would not seek the death penalty for Eric Boyd for his role in the January 2007 rape-torture-murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

If convicted, Boyd would receive a sentence of life with possibility of parole after 51 years.

This hearing had been postponed for several months while Boyd had a medical condition. He supposedly had a large cyst on his forehead. No such thing was visible in court on Wednesday.

The trial was set by Judge Bob McGee for January 3, 2019.

The link to the Knox News story has a brief interview with the victims' parents. Gary Christian has a new young wife.

I just sent you the latest Knoxville Horror news. Eric Boyd's attorney is asking for the case thrown out due to the decade-long delay in filing charges. The trial was supposed to start in January. Boyd is demanding it be delayed due to the delay.

There is a hearing today, Wednesday December 5.
