arsonist/stalker case from last month, I was delighted to learn that Tommy Lee Knight's charges were amended to 3 counts of Attempted Murder and he is now in custody. The State's Motion to Revoke Bond on March 5th was also granted by Judge Lubet.
This is one of those cases that haunted me after monitoring the February bond hearing. The fear that the victim exhibited, as she trembled during her testimony, was abundantly evident. Her mother expressed how helpless she felt in keeping her teenage daughter safe from the defendant.
Knight now has two new misdemeanor charges pending. In case 2010MM2269AO there are two counts of Resisting Officer w/o Violence and in 2010MM2250AO he is charged with one count of Violating Pretrial Release Conditions on a Domestic Violence case (both filed on 3/3/10).
Mr. Knight is now in custody. His trial is scheduled for next month.
