Has he been to trial yet?
01-26-2006, 04:53 PM #7
I believe so. I am still checking. I am just now finding new info. I probably should've posted this in the trial forum, I had found that news story from today about the death sentence request, and there wasn't a thread started so I didn't know where to post it.
I am astounded at an article I just found on the web and I will not even post it here. I was reading it and I wasn't sure where it was going, but by the title, I had an idea. It was the most racist, filthy piece of writing I had ever read. People are disgusting.
Talking about how little Caucasian girls would have a better chance at life if other cultural people didn't live here. I couldn't believe the writer of the story and how completely biased and obviously ra.... I am just not going to post any further about this.
Anyway, mods, if you want to move this thread somewhere else where it would fit better that would be good.

Victim's family speaks out

A lot of new information is coming out in the case of a murdered Garner teen. Now Amanda Maynard's mother, Tammie Edrington, is speaking out...
Also according to the search warrants, after O'Neal left Maynard's house he went to a party up the street where he cleaned his hands of blood. He also sat downstairs, told a few jokes and played the piano. Then later in the night he went back to his house where he told his mom he had heard a scream and told her to call 911.
The warrants also said O'Neal's mother lied about hearing the screams herself. Now Maynard's family says O'Neal deserves only one punishment...death.
“I will make sure he does,” Edrington added. “I will see to it."

This is so sad. So....do we know his motivation? Was it rape? Did he rape her after he stabbed her? A beautiful little girl gone forever!

I'm confused. The earlier links are dated 2005, but then the last article linked is dted 2006 and says she was killed over the weekend. This just happened? Or was it last year?
