GA - Ronnie Davis, 39, shot & dismembered, Fulton County, 27 Dec 1997
ATLANTA Testimony resumes tomorrow (Saturday) in Fulton County Superior Court in the murder trial of a man accused of killing another man and dismembering his body over an alleged drug debt.
Prosecutors say Michael LeJeune should be convicted and sentenced to die in the killing and beheading of Ronnie Davis over a 250-dollar drug debt on December 27th, 1997.
The prosecution's star witness -- the former girlfriend of the 27-year-old LeJeune -- took the stand yesterday.
Twenty-eight-year-old Kelley Anand cut a deal with prosecutors in 2003 and agreed to testify against LeJeune.
Anand also testified that she suggested LeJeune go out and get a saw because the knife he was using to dismember Davis' body was NOT working.
The judge recessed court for a few minutes when a female juror started to cry after seeing the saw.
Davis' remains were found in a Forsyth County cemetery December 28th, 1997.

I hope Anand didn't get too good of a deal out of testifying. She sounds pretty cold blooded to me.

One of Fulton County's most grisly murder cases hit a snag once again in the middle of the death penalty trial.
Lead defense attorney Brian Steel asked to be removed from the Fulton County case Monday after spending seven years on the case. Steel's reason: a conversation he had with accused killer Michael LeJeune over the weekend.
Jurors were kept out of the courtroom as Steel told the judge and prosecutors that his conversation with LeJeune, who is on trial for a 1997 murder and decapitation, at the Fulton County Jail prevented him from continuing on the case. Steel did not elaborate because conversations between clients and their attorneys are supposed to be kept confidential unless both agree otherwise.
Superior Court Judge Constance Russell allowed Steel to withdraw from the case. Steel's co-counsel, Bud Siemon, will take over as lead attorney, but he'll have to find another attorney with experience on death cases to help him.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

From November 2014:
Lejeune’s first trial ended in a mistrial “due in part to the [Fulton County] courthouse shootings by Brian Nichols.”
He entered a negotiated guilty plea halfway through his second trial to the count of malice murder and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
