Assistant District Attorney Paul Newman is seeking a court order to obtain the password for the iPhone belonging to one of the men charged in a January double murder at a Walmart parking lot, the Murfreesboro Post reports. Murfreesboro Police turned the defendant’s iPhone over to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for processing. But, the "TBI says without a password on an iPhone, we can’t open it,” Newman said. The cell phone of Danarius Coleman is considered central to the case for several reasons. The defendant showed his girlfriend cell phone video of blood and brains in their car and glass shot out, according to her court testimony.
