If you’ve been following this website for the past two years, you know all about the Christian & Newsom murders. The pair was abducted, tortured, gang raped, killed, and their bodies were mutilated.

Anticipation

The five charges the jury found him not guilty on were all related to the gang rape of Chris Newsom. It is unknown why the jury found him not guilty on these charges.

Today family members of Cobbin took the stand to argue that he should be spared the death penalty. Their argument is that Cobbin’s mother was a 17 year old drug addict when he was born and did a poor job of raising him. Poor baby.
