Correction to what you posted. Michael Hancock's insistence on testifying at his trial did not "scuttle" any plea bargain. Michael Hancock denied the plea bargain before entering the court house. As a matter of fact, he turned it down when it was first offered. And, it was not the whole reason why the attorneys asked to leave the case.

Just so you know, there is a woman (Tracy Reeves) who was Michael's girlfriend at the time, is also charged with these murders.

I can understand that you would say Tracy is innocent since she is a friend of yours, just as I am saying Michael is innocent because he is my brother. No one wants to believe that either of them did it, But, we both don't know the truth really as of who actually did it. But what we do know for a fact is they were both involved. That is coming straight from Tracy saying she was there. So, she's not completely innocent. This is hard on everyone and I feel your pain.

I know the trial begins Monday. I am praying for your family. May God give you and the murder victims families peace through all this. Hopefully truth and justice will prevail.

Micael is my brother and I know for a fact that Tracy is not as innocent as she is portraying herself to be. She say Mike for the first time in 18 years and went away with him. She came up here with us and that was scary. She was a very mean and controlling person. Not only to Mike but to our mother. She is a very manipulative person and can get anyone to believe anything. She even had me fooled for a short while. But it came out of her own mouth that she wish she could kill Donnie. So she played Mike like a fiddle. He was so happy up here. Had a good job and family support. Laughed alot. Then here is Tracy and Mike never smiled again, then he left with her and all hell broke loose. I hate what THEY did, but no one on this earth can convince me Tracy is innocent.

I don't know how anyone could believe this woman is innocent considering the fsct that it was SHE who was once the neighbor of the victim, Leonard Curtis Johnson Jr., SHE knew what time he left for work because SHE lived by him. From what I've read they were there waiting. SHE knew he lived alone so no one would hear the gunshots. Innocent my ass. Just so people know I have no emotional investment in either of these people, I don't know Micheal or Tracy.
