A Knox County judge ruled this week that the jury in the Zaevion Dobson case will get to hear a statement given by one of the accused, despite his claims that the statement was given under duress, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Fifteen-year-old Zaevion Dobson was killed in 2015 while shielding friends from gunfire. Prosecutors say that the testimony puts Christopher Drone Bassett at the scene of the crime with a gun in his hand.
