KNOXVILLE - Letalvis Cobbins is already confessing guilt to facilitating the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.
During the routine reading of the indictment this morning, defense attorney Scott Green declared Cobbins guilty of the lesser charge of facilitating the January 2007 slayings.
The move comes as no surprise.
That's part of the plan by Cobbins' defenders to try not to spare him a prison term. They're trying to save his life.

Note the absence of any description of race of either the murderers or victims.
Heinous scum perps.
If these deviants don’t get capital punishment, no one should.
FoxNews version, which I should have used:
Knoxville has reported over $330,000 spent on the defense of these four jokers so far by the taxpayers and they haven’t even gone to trial yet.
Thanks for the update.
“Police, prosecutors and the victims’ families maintain that Newsom and Christian were not victims of a hate crime, rather victims of a carjacking that went terribly awry.”
It is only considered a ‘hate crime’ if you are black or gay.
“the defendants are poor and black, the victims were middle-class and white”
So those white kids deserved what they got?!!!
You mean to tell me the WELFARE SYSTEM didn’t work to keep these thugs off the street to kill innocent people?! I would think after spending BILLIONS on these thugs they would have turned their lives around. /S
If either of these kids were mine I would spend my entire life’s savings to pay Aunt B’s crew to visit some serious justice on these lowlifes.
Mom: Son, I name you Letalvis. You’d better be good at sports.
If I was related to the victims in this case, there would be heck to pay.
I remember Knoxville being a beautiful place back inb the fifties and sixties when we would visit my Dad’s people there. What a sewer it has become.
I would put on my best Vlad Tepes impersonation with these scum.
These poor kids died horribly to provide amusement for blacks.
These are the kind of crimes where it seems pointless to me to even have a trial for these monsters. I can’t imagine the horror the families are going to have to sit through. This case is one of the most stomach-turning I’ve ever read about. The details are haunting.
Why aren’t they using the gov’t pool of atty’s who should be on salary? Is KY paying for private atty’s?
I can’t even imagine the mental and physical terror these two suffered. Animals don’t do this to prey. Sick sick sick.
Has anyone in the black community condemned these sub creatures?
This is the worst racially movitated hate crime in memory and we have to read about it here and on other sites. Why not on the evening news? /s/
I can’t believe AP even ran this story. I guess it is appearing on Fox and in some other local papers outside of TN. But can you imagine if the races were reversed, or if the races involved had all been the same, whether white or black? This would be a bigger story than the Duke case, where there wasn’t even a real rape involved. Nancy Grace, Greta, Geraldo would be all over it. Instead Michael Jackson and other stories take preference. Shows where the media’s priorities are.
