Motions Hearing Held for Crystal Mangum, “Duke Lacrosse Accuser”, in Stabbing Case

From By Chris Williams, November 6, 2013

The Durham woman who once falsely accused Duke lacrosse players of rape was back in court Wednesday for a pre-trial hearing.

Crystal Mangum is charged with stabbing and killing her boyfriend Reginald Daye in April 2011.

She claims she stabbed him in self-defense and a medical error caused him to die 10 days after the incident.

Her attorneys filed more than a dozen motions and the judge denied a request for jurors to go back to the apartment to see the crime scene.

The biggest issue was how much the Duke lacrosse case will play into the trial.

The judge will ask jurors if they can put aside Mangum’s involvement in that case when jury selction begins Tuesday.
