Court Date Set for Protest Organizer

Knoxville (WVLT) - The organizer of a racially-charged rally in Knoxville over the weekend is expected in court June Fourth for a bonded arraignment to face the charges against him.

Saturday afternoon in Downtown Knoxville, white supremacists protested the January murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

All the accused killers in the case are black and the couple is white.

Police and the parents of the victims have said publicly the crime is not race-related.
