A trial begins for Richard Lyons in the accusation of killing his 9 year old daughter back in 2008. This case has been built on circumstancial evidence than actual evidence that he physically killed his daughter. It is said that the 45 year old father beat and stabbed May Lyons in july of ’08.
Prosecutors hired a forensic specialist who says the blood spatter in Mr. Lyons van, that was used to transport his daughter to the hospital, is inconsistant with the story he gave the police, in fact he believes that is where the incident took place. Which he initially claimed to have said he found her in an alley bleeding and took her to the hospital.
The first witness was a women who lived 8 doors down from the Lyons home, which is where May and her brother where previously at before she died later that day.
It took over two years for the father to be charged, but in the begin he still wasn’t a suspect until they confescated his van where they found her blood on the curtans and in the vent. Which the only possible way it could have gotten there is if the murder took place there. And looking back, the reports of the father not calling 911 as well as he didn’t take her to the nearest hospital and saying he thought a dog attacked her.
More reports continue as the trial goes on…
