Channon Gail Christian, aged 21, and Hugh Christopher Newsom, Jr., aged 23, were from Knoxville, Tennessee. They were kidnapped on the evening of January 6, 2007, when Christian’s vehicle was carjacked, and taken to a rental house, where both of them were tortured and murdered.
Four males and one female were arrested, charged, and convicted in the case. In 2007, a grand jury indicted Letalvis D. Cobbins, Lemaricus Davidson, George Thomas, and Vanessa Coleman.
Also in 2007, Eric Boyd was indicted by a federal grand jury of being an accessory to a carjacking, resulting in serious bodily injury to another person, and misprision of a felony.
On April 16, 2008, Eric Boyd was found guilty in Federal court of being an accessory to a fatal carjacking and for failing to report the location of a known fugitive. Boyd was the first to go to trial, the only suspect not charged with murder. He was sentenced to the maximum of 18 years in Federal prison.
On March 20, 2018, eleven years after the murders, a Knox County grand jury returned a thirty-six count indictment and charged Eric Boyd.
After more than a year in pre-trial motions, Boyd finally went to trial on the state charges in August 2019. This is the trial you are seeing here.
