  • Pretty much the ultimate follow-up to the Duke lacrosse case




    DURHAM — A jury found Crystal Mangum guilty of second-degree murder Friday for stabbing and killing her boyfriend, Reginald Daye, in 2011.

    After Superior Court Judge Paul Ridgeway sentenced Mangum to 14 years and two months to 18 years in prison, deputies immediately led her handcuffed out of the courtroom.

    Mangum’s attorney, Daniel Meir, said she will appeal.

    The case was unusual because, unlike most murder cases, the jury heard the victim’s side of the story.

    Mangum, 35, stabbed Daye on April 3, 2011, and an investigator spoke with him twice before he died April 13, 2011.

    Daye told the investigator that he became angry at Mangum for disrespecting him by bringing other men to the apartment. He admitted Mangum was in the bathroom when he kicked in the door and that he grabbed her by the hair. He said as they continued to fight, Mangum tried to stab him several times before stabbing him in the side of the chest as he stood in the hallway.

    Mangum took the stand in her own defense and said it was Daye who attacked her with knives by throwing them at her. She stabbed him, she said, after he dragged her out of the bathroom by the hair, straddled her and began strangling her.

    I'm still waiting for every single faculty member who signed that condemnation to personally write an apology to every single team member who was condemned.

    Then I want the letters all published in the NYT.

      Then I want them to pay damages.
