The facts as the case started: Nyosha White was in a vehicle and Donzell Curry was in the back. The driver witnessed everything. She told detectives Curry shot Nyosha in the back of the head, forced her to drive and find a place to dump Nyosha. They dumped Nyosha on a street, burned her belongings, cleaned the car and acted like nothing happened.
Curry was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. From May 2012 through September 2013, Curry had not admitted anything, had no remorse and had threatened the witness from jail, gaining another felony charge. In September 2013 he wanted to plead to involuntary manslaughter. Why? Because the gun was tested again and found to have a hair trigger. First test of gun proved nothing was wrong.
Initially St. Clair County Judge Michael Cook presided over this case. There was an eyewitness to the murder, Curry allegedly had threatened a witness, and the first gun test said no hair trigger. What if the case hadn't been prolonged for 16 months? And if it was an accident, why did it take 16 months to admit anything?
Now according to the Illinois Department of Corrections, Curry is serving three years for unlawful communication with a witness, no mention of the eight years involuntary manslaughter charge, and his projected parole date is July 23, 2015.
At 19 Nyosha's life ended at the hands of Curry and he may serve only 546 days. Where is the involuntary manslaughter charge and the justice?
