How terrible for them. Can they do anything about it, like go before the parole board?

Tonja Burk, WBIR 12:21 p.m. EST December 2, 2014

The only woman convicted in one of Knoxville's most high profile murder cases will face a parole board next week.

Vanessa Coleman was convicted of facilitation of felony murder, aggravated kidnapping, and rape and sentenced to serve 35 years behind bars in February 2013.

She was one of four people who participated in the 2007 carjacking, murder, and rape of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom.

Her first parole hearing is set for December 10, 2014 in Nashville.

Appellate court upholds death sentence for Lemaricus Davidson in torture killings
Jamie Satterfield, Mar 10, 2015

A state appeals court late Tuesday issued an opinion upholding the conviction and death sentence for the ringleader in one of Knoxville’s most notorious crimes.

The Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals in a 91-page opinion rejected every argument advanced by Lemaricus Davidson, who was sentenced to die in the January 2007 torture killings of Channon Christian, 21, and Christopher Newsom, 23.

Davidson was tried in October 2009. Trial testimony showed Davidson orchestrated the initial carjacking of the couple, who were held captive at Davidson’s Chipman Street house before their deaths, and DNA evidence linked him to repeated rapes of Christian. Of the four defendants charged and convicted in the case, Davidson was the only one to receive a death sentence.

The appellate court, in the opinion authored by Judge James Curwood Witt Jr., ruled there was ample evidence to support all of Davidson’s myriad convictions for the carjacking, kidnapping, rape and slayings of the couple. The court rejected claims by Davidson’s defense team of bad rulings before trial, legal mistakes during the trial and constitutional issues involving the law itself.

The court also affirmed a jury’s decision to order Davidson put to death for his crimes. In so doing, the court noted the Knox County jury was instructed to make its decision based not on emotion but on the weighing of listed aggravating factors and mitigating factors. The jury, the court said, concluded the aggravated factors outweighed those mitigating factors — with good cause.
