Prosecutors said today at a hearing for accused murderer Eric Boyd they are no longer seeking the death penalty and have also taken life without parole off the table. The trial date for Boyd, who is charged in the brutal 2007 slayings of Knox County couple Channon Christian and Chris Newsom, has been set for January 3, 2019. Boyd was initially charged with being an accessory to the crime but was recently indicted on a host of charges including first-degree murder and aggravated rape.
