Shelby Co. teen convicted in 2015 beating case requests new trial

Eric Blackerby (Shelby County Jail)

A teen convicted last month for fatally beating his peer with a baseball bat, has asked for a new trial.

Court documents reveal 18-year-old Eric Blackerby has listed multiple reasons for a new trial, alleging his 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendment rights were violated in the original trial.

On September 26th, a Shelby County judge sentenced Blackerby to life in prison for Will Neff's death.
