Defense in Channon Christian Case Claims Case is “heavily publicized”

In the Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom double rape and murder case, defense attorney Philip Lomonaco claims the case has been heavily publicized and that there is a news feeding frenzy, preventing suspect Eric Boyd from receiving a fair trial.

Lomonaco is especially critical of blogs, claiming they are spreading lies because some reported that the victim’s bodies had been sexually mutilated. Channon and Christopher were carjacked, raped and murdered. Cleaning fluid was poured down Channon Christian’s throat and she was dumped in the garbage. Christopher Newsom was set on fire. However Lomonaco may be right. There is no reliable evidence suggesting sexual mutilation.

Background:

In January, Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian were on a date when they were carjacked and kidnapped. Christopher was murdered and his body burned soon after the carjacking. Christian was kept alive longer and was repeatedly raped. Cleaning fluid had been poured into her mouth to hide DNA evidence before she was murdered and thrown in the garbage.

Suspects Eric Boyd, George Thomas, Lemaricus Davidson, Letalvis Cobbins and Vanessa Coleman:

None of the suspects have been charged with a hate crime because there is apparently no evidence that the suspects engaged in name calling while they were allegedly raping and murdering the young couple. The major news outlets continue to ignore the story.
