TBI declines Christian-Newsom access to Baumgartner files

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The parents of the victims in the Christian-Newson murders say the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has declined to give them access to files concerning ex-judge Richard Baumgartner. 

The TBI investigated Baumgartner's addiction to prescription painkillers.

Files related to the investigation played a role in the granting of retrials to the four convicted in the 2007 murders.

The families' attorney has asked for time to respond to the TBI.  A court has not ruled.
