It will be months before Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood will decide whether he will step down from the Knoxville Horror torture-murder case of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

Meanwhile, Blackwood has reversed his previous order giving new trials to Lemaricus Davidson and Letalvis Cobbins, pending a review of the transcripts of their trials. A hearing for these two cases is set for August 17.

A hearing concerning the Knox County DA's request for Blackwood's recusal is set for October 8.

The order granting a new trial for George Thomas still stands.

The motions have not included Vanessa Coleman, the fourth defendant. Her trial is still set for November.
