Thomas to be in court Tuesday on request for new trial

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday morning on whether convicted murderer George Thomas will get another trial in the Christian-Newsom murders.

Thomas was convicted for the second time in May and in June given two back-to-back life sentences.

Defense attorneys could also bring up more motions, asking for the case to be overturned, and for either a new sentence or a new sentencing hearing.

The defense argues a number of factors, including that the evidence at trial was not enough to support the convictions and that it was wrong to impose consecutive sentences.
