Murder charge in Christine Blackburn-Wiles case

In April 2007, 39-year-old Christine Blackburn-Wiles disappeared from Belleview, Florida. Her former boyfriend, Billy Ashton, has just been charged with murder, less than 24 hours after he was sentenced to thirty years in prison for illegal weapons possession.

There’s some DNA evidence — Christine’s blood in the trunk of Ashton’s car — but it looks like most of the case will rest on the testimony of informants who say they heard Ashton confess. He does have a history of violence to women and once served six years for kidnapping and assaulting another girlfriend.

    Billy did not kill her, there is no way he could’ve, he is such a good-hearted man, i bet someone framed him and wants him gone…my aunt loves him alot and is trying to help find the real person who did this SO LEAVE HIM ALONE ๐Ÿ™‚

      Forgive me if I’m a little skeptical, given the blood in his trunk and his history of violence. There is no good reason for the woman’s blood to be in his trunk.

    He killed her and your “Billy” is a dick. A real asshole as I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him in jail. Let me tell you I have never seen someone pray so much in my entire life. I even heard him whisper her name a couple times. This was the first and second week he was in jail in 2007 before they took him to protective custody.
