Tomorrow, Monday January 28 [i.e., later today], Lemaricus Davidson, "alleged" ringleader, will appear in a Knoxville courtroom. Why? He's trying to get his death sentence reduced to "life."

N.S.: David's scare quotes are because Davidson's next step would be to get paroled.

That stuff with the Knoxville is going to go on forever.

Today (Monday) was the first day ( of hearings for convicted Knoxville Horror killer Lemaricus Davidson's attempt to overturn his death sentence.

His lawyers raised a few arguments. They complain Davidson's trial got too much national publicity. When has it been on ABC 20/20, NBC Nightline, CBS 48 Hours? Answer, none.

One of his trial attorneys, Doug Trant, testified Davidson was offered a plea deal of "Life Without Parole," but Davidson insisted on going to trial.

Davidson's lawyers wanted to "point the finger at Eric Boyd" but were unable to. It was admitted that Davidson was of sound mine and knew what he was doing at the trial.

The hearing will continue tomorrow (Tuesday).
