The murder trial in the October 2019 death of 2-year-old Conner Perry is set to begin May 22nd, 2023.
On trial is Conner’s Mother, Trinity Grace Pittman, and her then live in boyfriend, Jeremy Dequain Davis.
The pair is accused of the continued abuse and eventual murder of Pittman’s 2-year-old son, Conner Perry, on October 25th, 2019.
On the night of October 25th, 2019, Pittman showed up at Piedmont Newnan Hospital with Conner, who was unresponsive. Medical Staff at the hospital would quickly notify authorities after seeing the severity of the wounds the infant had been subjected to.
When initially questioned by authorities, Pittman had stated Conner had fallen off a trampoline, face first on to a cinder block earlier in the day and that she’d gone to work, leaving him and her other son in the care of Davis, before returning to find him unresponsive.
As time went on however, authorities say that she changed her story, admitting to beating Conner after becoming enraged over a potty training accident.
Over the last few months lawyers for the defendants and the DA have been going head to head in court over the last of the pre-trial motions.
Two of the main motions stem from Pittman’s defense which tried, unsuccessfully, to severe her trial from the trial of Davis. Pittman’s defense contends that she was at work when the trauma that would lead to Conner’s death occurred, placing the murder solely on Davis. This would be a much easier defense to raise had the trial been separated.
The other motion by Pittman’s defense, that was also unsuccessful, was to exclude on of two video taped interviews done at the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, stating she wasn’t notified of her Miranda Rights and that she didn’t give the interview voluntarily. The Judge didn’t agree after hearing evidence, including witnesses.
The trial is set to start Monday, May 22nd, 2023 and is slated to last up to two weeks.
