KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee man convicted of kidnapping, rape and murder charges in the fatal carjacking of a couple on a date has been sentenced to death.
The defendant, 28-year-old Lemaricus Davidson, showed no reaction Friday as jurors announced the death sentences for the murders of 21-year-old college student Channon Christian and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Christopher Newsom.
Davidson was found guilty of abducting the couple in Knoxville during a 2007 carjacking by several armed men.

Finally the AP reports this story!
Hey look, a MSM tard news agency covered a story that has been out there for how many years?
Cant happen too soon..... have fun in HELL demaricus
“In the carjacking” BULL HOOEY!
They neglected to mention torture in the summary description of the assault.
The talking point has been to spin it as a robbery gone wrong. Robbery was not the goal. They ditched the vehicle soon afterwards.
Why any robber will torture you if you cross him... ain’t that common sense?
Kidnapping, torture, rape, and murder.
Oh yeah, and it was a robbery that didn’t result in keeping or selling the stolen goods.
I hope they don’t drag out the appeals process because you know it’s coming. I was surprised the other monster didn’t get the death penalty.
BLACK MAN CONVICTED OF HATE CRIME MURDER OF WHITE COUPLE.
This pretence by police that color had nothing to do with it is a compete cop out..
“I was surprised the other monster didnt get the death penalty.”
I think he was given life only because he cooperated with the prosecutor in describing the horrific tortures they inflicted!
Yeah, soon we will hear Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson screaming that this was a lynch job by a mostly white jury. Though maybe with this case they will have finally bitten off more than they can chew.
I hope jurors are smart enough to keep their lips zipped... “no comment” to any press inquiry large or small. If they want to be sure the death sentence stands, that is.
Excellent. Now execute the sentence, Tennessee.
This dirt bag scum of the earth vermin gets the easy way out...his victims didn’t.
A short grudging news story of a horrific hate crime.
If the races were reversed, it would have been national news for months!!!!!!!!!
Here is a description of the crime from Wikipedia;
“According to news reports, Christian and Newsom had gone on a date at a local restaurant on Saturday, January 6, 2007, but did not return home. During their night out, the couple was “hijacked, bound and blindfolded and taken back to Lemaricus Devall ‘Slim’ Davidson’s rented house on Chipman Street.”
Christian’s parents found her abandoned Toyota 4-Runner two blocks away from the Chipman Street house the following Monday with the help of her mobile phone provider. An envelope recovered from the vehicle yielded fingerprint evidence that led police to Lemaricus Davidson and 2316 Chipman Street. When police went to the address on Tuesday, January 9, they found the home unoccupied and Christian’s body in a trash can in the kitchen.
According to the testimony of the Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan at the subsequent trial of Eric Boyd, Newsom was repeatedly raped and then blindfolded, gagged, arms and feet bound and his head covered. Barefoot, he was either led or dragged outside the house to a set of nearby railroad tracks. He was shot in the back of the head, the neck, and the back, and his body then set on fire.
Christian’s death came only after hours of sexual torture, medical examiner Mileusnic-Polchan testified. Christian suffered horrific injuries to her vagina, anus and mouth. She was not only raped but savaged with “an object,” possibly a broken chair leg, the doctor testified. She was beaten in the head. Some type of chemical was poured down her throat, and her body, including her bleeding and battered genital area, likely scrubbed with the same solution - all while Christian was alive, the forensic expert said. She was then “hog-tied,” with curtains and strips of bedding, her face covered tightly with a small trash bag and her body stashed inside five large trash bags before being placed inside a large trash can and covered with sheets. Christian died slowly, suffocating, the medical examiner said.”
Yet the police dont call it a hate crime because there is no evidence that racial slurs were used! (roll eyes)
GOOD! About time.
Unfortunately with the appeals system in Tennessee, he will sit on death row for 20 to 30 years.
Both were raped, Newsom was fatally shot and Christian suffocated after she was choked and stuffed in a garbage bag and trash can.
Christopher was raped, bound and made to walk blindfolded with a sock in his mouth and a shirt over his head barefoot to some railroad tracks where he was shot several times and then burned. His body was found the next day.
Channon suffered far worse as she was tortured, raped, and beaten. You can google her and her boyfriends name to get the details because they are just too gruesome for me to retype.
Gathering a loyal fan club in the process.
Who are the other 3 in the picture? Did all three have a part in this?
Short video of verdict being read and parents’ reactions at the below link:
Thanks MT, just missed it I guess.
They'd be a lot deader if he did doncha know.
This was a hate crime. Pure and simple. I hope the low-life scum burns in hades!
I really feel for the Christian and Newsome families.
Thanks for the link to the video. This killer had absolutely no emotion throughout the trial, the verdict nor the punishment handed down. Either he is a true defect of nature or sedated ... I now the first is true.
“.. soon we will hear Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson ..”
No we won’t hear from them nor Obama; they silenced the media on this ... those are their words.
There were 5 involved in this: 2 sentenced, 1 pending trial, 1 guy is in federal prison and has not been charged and the woman is trying to get immunity and not be charged. They need to throw the book at her too as in her own words, she participated WILLINGLY.
lalalala ...we’re alike blah blah blah..
All of the 4 had a part in it. They are all animals and deserve to die a slow, painful death. Unfortunately the liberals who wrote our existing laws say that causing pain to animals such as these is prohibited. I am afraid if I was the parent of either of these kids, all 4 of these a**hats would be dead by now and I would be on trial.
True. I shouldn’t be so judgmental.
What on earth could have caused them to stray from their medical school studies, retirement home volunteer work, high tech jobs and religious studies?
Surely this is just an aberration, the first time any of them even thought of something like this, no doubt caused by White Privilege and its attendant and inherent racism.
The horribly mutilated, raped and tortured victims were actually the true aggressors.
I’m going to stop now before I do or say something that in and of itself will become a post on FR.
You bet! Could not agree more
Thanks, just didn’t check the source for further information.
Cannot imagine what they are going through. Lost my parents in a flood many years ago, but nothing like this. What a horrible way to die.
Too bad it’s not 1909—the citizens would have already handled this.........
hear hear...and folks behaved better too
