Last week, Gary Lee Robinson was convicted of murder and evidence tampering in the 1999 disappearance of his ex-girlfriend, Tammi Campbell. I wasn’t even aware he’d been charged. The most detailed article I could find is here; it’s from before the actual conviction.
Robinson went to trial very fast; he was indicted last May. It’s pretty uncommon for a murder suspect to go to trial less than a year after the murder. Sometimes the wait will be more like four or five years. Alexander Olive‘s father wasn’t tried for eight years!
