Buddhist Temple Deaths Case Reopened

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
