    From June 2009:


    A Jasper County jury took a little over three hours to convict Eric Wade Smith of the capital murder death of Martin Byerly in September of 2007... The conviction carries an automatic life in prison without the possibility of parole...

    Hollis also poked holes in Smith's assertion that Byerly sexually assaulted him in the Tri-A-Nite Hotel in September of 2007. "I have dealt with a lot of sexual assault victims," Hollis said during closing statements. "I have never known one to murder their perpetrator and then hide their body. I've never known one to clean up to the extent Eric Smith did"...

    Hollis asserted that Smith robbed Byerly during their meeting in September and when Byerly refused to give up his wallet, he assaulted the Jasper man. "Eric Smith reacted to this as he did in other cases in his life by taking it from him," Hollis said. "He got him down on the floor and beat his brains in with a cinderblock.
