The Knoxville Horror: A Measure of Justice

By Nicholas Stix has published my newest article on the Knoxville Horror: “One Knoxville Horror Perp Sentenced To Death—But The Time-Bomb Is Ticking”.

It’s on the second KH murder trial, in which Lemaricus Davidson was in the dock.

In the second Knoxville Horror murder trial, only one penalty could spell justice for the victims of Lemaricus Davidson, the man who with an indeterminate number of accomplices carjacked, kidnapped, gang-raped, beat, sexually tortured and murdered Channon Christian, 21, and Christopher Newsom, 23: Death.

And death was indeed the sentence finally meted out to Davidson on Friday afternoon, by seven male and five female jurors.

My other recent work on the Davidson trial, from oldest to newest, follows.
