Sad story but a very poor article about it. There was no information about what constitutes first and second degree murder in Tennessee or any information on why the jury may have picked second instead of first? Maybe this was one of a set of articles, so this one provided the human interest part rather than the facts of the case, in which case I could excuse it. If it was the only article about the trial it just has a huge gap in it.

Give him his new trial and THEN convict him of 1st Degree murder.

Since when do judges have the right to criticize a jury? Like it or not 12 people reached a decision and that’s how it is.
