Crystal Mangum found guilty of 2nd-degree murder (DukeLax)
The (Raleigh, NC) News & Observer ^ | November 22, 2013 | Beth Velliquette

Posted on 11/22/2013 9:59:08 AM PST by abb

DURHAM Crystal Mangum was found guilty of second degree murder Friday in the death her boyfriend, Reginald Daye.

In a quick-moving trial, jurors deliberated over four options: first-degree murder, guilty of second-degree murder, guilty of voluntary manslaughter or not guilty.

That Mangum stabbed boyfriend Daye, 46, on April 3, 2011, was never in question.

She admitted during the eight-day trial that she “poked” Daye with a knife in the side of the chest with a steak knife at his apartment, but she claimed she did it in self-defense while he was straddling her and trying to choke her.

Daye told investigators that Mangum stabbed him during the argument after she “disrespected” him by bringing other men to his house.

Both said that sometime during their fight, Mangum went into the bathroom and locked the door and that Daye broke the door down and grabbed her by the hair. Mangum said he dragged her out of the bathroom by the hair and that she stabbed him shortly after that.

Some journalist should interview all of those scumbag Dukees that signed that stupid letter supporting this POS and ask them what human quality did she possess to give her their support!

Sounds like good evidence of self defense.

I'm confused about this article.

How could Daye testify to investigators about his murder ?

To her supporters in the media, the DA’s office and the Dewk faculty lounge, she was a “struggling single mom and veteran, working part time while trying to get a college education.”

After his stabbing, Daye lived for several days before succumbing. He was interviewed by investigators.

Ya know, back in 2006 when the DukeLax thing blew up, once everyone got a look at the skanky creature that was supposed to have been raped by the Lax team, it was obviously BS.

Those guys DO NOT have to resort to such desperation. And everybody knew it.

Yeah, you’d think the LAX team could have found some attractive Duke co-eds to strip for them. never mind; there aren’t any.

The characteristic was that she is black, and everyone jumped to the conclusion that mean white boys took advantage of an innocent black girl.

She was judged based on the color of her skin, and the color of the skin of the males involved. She was not judged on the content of her character.

She also spun quite a tale when accusing the Duke Lacrosse players, and some false accusations before that.

Daye told investigators that Mangum stabbed him during the argument after she “disrespected” him by bringing other men to his house.

"Disrespected" is not even a word, it is Ebonics speak.

Well Crystal, you reap what you sow.

“Friend of Rev. Al.”

Not sure about that, but during the Duke Lacrosse fiasco, Jesse Jackson and his Rainbow Coalition gave her a full scholarship to college. After all....Jesse said this poor girl was innocent and raped by those horrible lacrosse players.

Jesse...you’re an idiot, and all of us here at FR knew she was LYING! Those poor boys went through hell!

Horrible case too!

Also, I think Mike Nifong should be in jail, but at least he’s bankrupt and shamed. Well....let’s hope so.

If she murdered him, how was he able to tell investigators what happened? Did he survive initially, long enough to get to an ER and speak with investigators about her ‘disrespecting’ him?

Gee...this is like a reunion of the Duke lacrosse Free Republic regulars. We were here all day and night for months following this case, weren’t we? And we immediately had that malicious Crystal figured out from the very beginning, didn’t we?

Now I don’t understand why she was charged with 2nd degree murder and not 1st degree.

I too would like that Group of 88 to be held accountable for falsely accusing and helping to destroy the lives of the white lacrosse players accused of rape:

The Group of 88 was a group of 88 professors at Duke University all of whom signed a controversial advertisement which was published two weeks after a woman falsely claimed to have been raped by members of Duke's lacrosse team. The advertisement, which appeared in the Duke Chronicle on April 6, 2006, contained language implying that the charges were true.

Later, of course, the group of 88 claimed their words were mis-interpreted and they tried to backtrack. But, as far as know, not a single one of them faced ANY suspension, sanction or firing, meaning justice was not entirely served in this case.

IIRC, she was charged with murder one, but apparently the jury decided there was insufficient prior intent.

I think one of them is even a dean or department head now.
