JURY SELECTION BEGINS FOR MAN ACCUSED OF KILLING ERIN CORWIN

JURY SELECTION BEGINS FOR MAN ACCUSED OF KILLING ERIN CORWIN

Jury selection for the man accused of murdering Erin Corwin, 19, of Twentynine Palms began Monday in San Bernardino, according to a tweet sent out by the County’s District Attorney’s Office. Christopher Lee, 26, is accused of killing his neighbor’s wife—with whom he was having an affair—and hiding her body in the desert east of Twentynine Palms in June 2014, while he was a Marine stationed at the Combat Center. The prosecution says that Corwin was expecting a marriage proposal from Lee the day he drove her out into the desert, but instead, Lee strangled her and then dumped her body down a 140-foot mine shaft in the Rose of Peru mining area. Investigators searched for seven weeks before finding her body. Under a series of peremptory challenges filed by the lawyers in the case, Christopher Lee’s trial was moved from Joshua Tree to San Bernardino in September, and another new judge, Dwight Moore, recently took over the case from Judge Glenn Yabuno.
