    Easley formerly charged by grand jury--capital murder

    http://www.roanokefreepress.com/?p=13301

    A Roanoke County grand jury today charged 33-year-old Jeffrey Scott Easley with Murder in the Commission of Abduction with Intent to Defile. This charge is one of the forms of capital murder in Virginia, which means if convicted Easley faces the possibility of life in prison with no parole or death. Roanoke County Commonwealth’s Attorney Randy Leach said this afternoon that he has not yet decided whether he will pursue the death penalty.
    I know this isn't new news, but I thought it was worth re-posting. Wonder when his trial will begin....

    Abduction suspect Easley's lawyers to seek facts on trip to California

    Defense attorneys Mark Claytor and Thomas Roe want to look into three or four different statements made by Brittany Mae Smith to detectives in San Francisco, Roe said. The attorneys also plan to visit the grocery store where they were spotted and see other evidence: a tent they bought in Salem, sleeping clothes, information from the person who identified the two.

    Easley pleads no contest, avoids death penalty in mother's murder
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    Jeff Easley pleads no contest to capital murder, gets life in prison

    Early on the morning of the murder, Tina Smith sent a text to Easley saying "We need to talk right now."

    Later that morning, there were also texts between Tina Smith's 12-year-old daughter and Easley.

    One of the texts from from Easley to Brittany Smith said "When you get back, I'm going to do it. I can't lose you."


    “Easley had almost complete access to Brittany for nearly five months prior to the murder," Mason said in a news release. "The investigation revealed that during that time Easley gradually increased his influence over the girl - even to the point of isolating her from family members. A text message sent from Tina Smith to a friend on the day of the murder stated that she thought that Easley had actually “brainwashed” her daughter.”

    Jeffrey Easley convicted of killing Tina Smith in Roanoke County

    The plea deal ensures that Easley will likely die in prison.

    Easley had little to say in court, only answering the judge's questions with one word answers.

    Tina Smith's family declined comment after the hearing.

    Roanoke County Commonwealth's Attorney Randy Leach said, to his knowledge, Brittany Smith was still having some "rough days," but "coming along."
