KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- Attorneys for Lemaricus Davidson, the alleged ringleader of the kidnapping, rapes and murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, have filed a motion to suppress statements he made in January 2007.
Attorneys say Davidson wasn't read his Miranda rights.
Christian and Newsom were killed in January 2007.
Davidson and three other suspects, Letalvis Cobbins, George Thomas and Vanessa Coleman, were arrested shortly afterward.
Cobbins' trial date was recently pushed back to Wednesday, August 12 instead of starting on July 6.
Coleman's trial has also been delayed from its start date on Monday, August 10. No new date has been set.
Despite motions by defense attorneys, the suspects are still facing the possibility of the death penalty.
However, in May, eight aggravated rape counts were dropped from the total filed against the suspects.
