In a recent hearing, new developments emerged in the murder case of Alexis Crawford, a Clark Atlanta University student who was killed over three years ago.
The accused killer, Barron Brantley, appeared in court for a bond hearing that was postponed.
Brantley’s attorneys are seeking his release while prosecutors appeal the ruling that they cannot use his confession in Crawford’s 2019 murder.
In the confession, Brantley reportedly admitted to choking Crawford and knowing that she was dead because she was “struggling to breathe” and making sounds of agony.
However, the judge ruled that Brantley was likely under the influence of drugs while giving the confession and was coerced into it by detectives.
As a result, the confession cannot be used as evidence in court.
This case has been closely followed for years, and more details can be found on 11alive.com.
