Christian-Newsom – Prayers Are Answered!


Some very good news!  Senior Judge Walter Kurtz denied retrials for Lemaricus Davidson and Letalvis Cobbins!

Davidson received the death sentence while Cobbins received life without parole.

George Thomas, however will receive a new trial because Baumgartner didn’t fulfill the role of 13th juror.

No forensic evidence linked Thomas to the crimes.  He did admit to being in the Chipman Street house, so he gets a do-over.

Judge Kurtz said the DNA evidence linking Cobbins and Davidson to the rape and murder of Channon was enough to uphold the verdicts.

I am so overjoyed for the Newsoms and Christians!

    I am so pleased with this decision. George was a real question mark all along. Lets hope the next jury gets it right.
