Accused triple murderer makes second bail plea Thursday in Texas stabbing case
The indictment unsealed Thursday said the charges are for "willfully" shooting the suspect on Aug. 29, 2014, and then attempting to murder him. Jurors in federal court are expected to find him not guilty of all charges at his preliminary hearing Nov. 8.
It doesn't say if he will 우리카지노have to stand trial.
"The only people that could help me is the jury, which is very important to me. I feel blessed. I don't feel cursed by this one sentence," said C.J. Hall, 21, a former high school track star from Dallas and his mother's friend.
Prosecutors also sought probation and community service, and a $100,000 reward. They called Hall, a Texas native, a hero in the slaying.
Court records indicate that Hall, who was in the process of becoming a professional football player, had been living with a woman during the time of the crime. A second woman told investigators she was with him the day of the shooting.
But a friend of Hall's, Tiffany Harris, said Wednesday that the woman he was with was with another man when the attack took place.
In court, C.J. Hall declined a plea agreement with federal prosecutors, saying he'd face the death penalty if convicted. He was due to be in court Thursday.
Prosecutor Mike Allred told U.S. District Judge John Gettron and judge on Friday at the same time that the investigation was ongoing.
There were more than 200 people in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in the early morning hours when the triple murder occurred.
At about 2:45 a.m., a woman with two toddlers at her feet called her girlfriend's apartment in the 3800 block of Old Texas Road, Court records show. She found a man with a gunshot wound to his torso, and told her he'd been shot in the chest. The woman then returned to her apartment and told her boyfriend that someone was in her apartment, Gettron told Allred in court Thursday.
Gettron told the court that police are "seriously concerned" about what may have been a drug transaction gone bad.
