In 1991, Jonathan Doody was convicted for the murder of nine people, six of whom were Buddhist monks. Now, so many years later, the Buddhist temple deaths case has been reopened for the third time.

The trial, which is taking place for the third time in a row, may lead to the defendant being given a life sentence. Jonathan Doody has faced prosecution for shooting 17 rounds and thereby killing six Buddhist monks in the process. The temple where this heinous crime occurred had his mother and brother as regular members. The monks had been shot in execution-style through the back of their heads. 

The defendant’s attorney has reiterated the fact that the incrimination had taken place due to insubstantial evidence provided by a fellow convict named Alex Garcia. At the time of the killings, Jonathan Doody was barely 17 years of age thereby making the due process of law virtually null and void. In other words, the defendant was underage. 

Despite being found guilty of murder and convicted to over 281 years in prison, the verdict was overturned twice. Now at the third trial, the innocence of Jonathan Doody remains a moot point. The prosecution’s side of the story is somewhat different. They claim that the murders were premeditated and carried out as per plan. 

Furthermore, the coldhearted and brutal manner of the manslaughter was laid out in all its gory detail. Meanwhile, the defense pointed out that the only one who was a hardened criminal was Alex Garcia and not Jonathan Doody. Till the final decision taken by the judge, Doody’s fate remains uncertain.
