The question continues to be whether Richard Robinson is the person who murdered Rhonda Boggs last April.
Defense attorney Diane Menashe says, she has sufficient evidence proving her client is innocent in the stabbing slaying of the Pataskala woman at her home. She hopes the Licking County Prosecutor's Office will dismiss its case against her client Robinson. He currently faces the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder.
Robinson was released from jail last week after Judge Greg Frost reduced bond from $1 million to just $35,000. The defense attorney says DNA testing of the murder weapon indicates someone other than Robinson was the killer. And Robinson was sitting in jail on April 29th, the day after the murder, while Boggs’ credit card was used in several places to buy gasoline.
Attorney Menashe refused to offer the name of who she believes who is the real killer. Prosecutors say Robinson is the person they believe committed the crime and the one they will take to trial.
