The trial of Stanley Cole, who is accused of murdering his girlfriend, Jackson State University student Latasha Norman, is set to begin February 8 in the Circuit Court of Hinds County, Mississippi.
The evidence against Stanley Cole at this point includes: (a) he confessed to murdering Natasha Norman; (b) he confessed to placing her in the trunk of his car; and (c) he went out on a date with another woman while Latasha Norman’s corpse was in his trunk. Further, there is DNA evidence that places Latasha Norman’s blood in Stanley Cole’s trunk.
This is a mountain of evidence. To make matters worse for Cole, he couldn’t afford an attorney, so he got stuck with a low-level assistant public defender to defend him against these charges.
Things ain’t looking good for Stanley right about now.
