Accused Wins Delay in Christian-Newsom Trial

Eric Boyd, accused in the slayings of 2007 Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, earned a delay in his trial today, Knoxnews reports. Knox County Criminal Court Judge Bob McGee said he agreed to the motion over concerns that without the delay, should Boyd be convicted, he would have a more successful shot at appeal. Boyd will now face trial on Aug. 5, more than 12 years after the Knoxville couple were brutally tortured and murdered.
