    TN- The Lillelid Murders, Greene County, April 6, 1997

    http://www.greenevillesun.com/news/l...6e250aa42.html

    A particularly heinous murder of a young family that captured worldwide attention at the time, happened here in Greeneville. Twenty years ago today.
    In the ensuing years since trials and punishments were handed down, alll of the six convicted murderers have asked for sentence reductions. The youngest defendant, 14 at the time of the crime, had his sentence reduced to 51 years. Currently, Karen Howell has an upcoming hearing on a request for sentence reduction. She was 17 in 1997.
    I was not sure which forum to post this in but I believe the Lillelids deserve to be remembered on websleuths.

    This is so horrible I stopped reading.

    I hope they keep them locked up and throw the key far, far away.

    I knew and grew up with Jason's family. His dad committed suicide. I am so thankful to this Judge!

    A judge denied a motion to reopen sentencing for a defendant in a 20-year-old triple slaying in East Tennessee.

    Media report Greene County Criminal Court Judge Alex Pearson rejected the motion from attorneys for Karen Howell, who was 17 when she pleaded guilty in 1998 to the roadside slayings of a mother, father and daughter in East Tennessee. She was sentenced to life without parole.

    Howell's attorneys cited recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions dealing with juvenile sentences in a motion asking for her sentence to be reconsidered.

    Thank you for starting this thread. Jason Bryant was the 14 year old. His dad, a good man, committed suicide.

    Lived here my whole life and never heard of this.
    I'm going to dig into it tonight when the little one goes to bed.
