Eric Boyd to make court appearance in Christian-Newsom murders case


Eric Boyd will appear in a Knox County court Monday for a hearing. 

He’ll make an appearance at a status hearing at a Knox County court Monday after his request for a venue change was denied last month.

Boyd is charged with murder in the 2007 slayings of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom. Boyd will appear in court on Monday. His bond is set at $1 million. 

Last year,  Boyd was arraigned on charges of felony murder, first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape in a 36-count indictment. Boyd was initially only convicted of accessory to the crime after the fact.

Four others have already been tried and convicted in the 2007 killings.
