BOYD GIVEN TWO LIFE SENTENCES PLUS 90 YEARS FOR KNOX CO. MURDERS

Eric Boyd received two life sentences plus 90 years yesterday after previously being sentenced to life with the possibility of parole.

Boyd was also found guilty for aggravated rape, kidnapping and robbery in the murders of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom.

Last month, Boyd was found guilty on 36 charges following the deaths of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom. During his trial, Boyd received life sentences with the possibility of parole on all 18 murder convictions related to their deaths.

Boyd was the fifth and final person convicted in the murders, rapes and carjacking of the young couple in 2007.

Boyd was convicted in April 2008 of federal charges of accessory after the fact, not for the murders or rapes. He is the only suspect connected to the murders of Christian and Newsom tried at a federal level, the rest were convicted in state trials.

In court yesterday, Boyd told the judge he was not guilty, although he acknowledged that the jury found him guilty.

He said he would be fighting the conviction.

As Boyd was escorted out of court, he looked at the family and said “I’ll be out.”
