DA: Death penalty out in all but one of four torture slaying suspects

It's official.

Death is no longer a possible fate for three of four defendants in the January 2007 torture slayings of a Knox County couple.

Assistant District Attorney General Leland Price has filed notice of an intention to seek the death penalty as punishment in the deaths of Channon Christian, 21, and boyfriend Christopher Newsom, 23, only against alleged ringleader Lemaricus Davidson.
