First Christian-Newsom murder trial moved to 2009

KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) — The first man set to go to trial in connection with the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom won’t go to trial until next year.

A Knox County judge reset Latalvius Cobbins’ murder trial to January 26th of next year.

Prosecutors have said Cobbins will be tried first. Unless they change their minds, the other suspects Vanessa Coleman, Lemaricus Davidson, and George Thomas will probably not go to trial until sometime next year.

That will likely mean, Eric Dewayne Boyd’s federal trial for allegedly being an accessory to the fatal carjacking that led to the deaths of Christian and Newsom, will be the first trial help in the double murder case.

Boyd does not face murder charges, but could face 30 years in jail if convicted.

Also today, prosecutors announced they will seek the death penalty against Venessa Coleman.

Volunteer TV’s Kim Bedford is in the courtroom awaiting more developments.
