In season two, we bring you coverage from the State of Georgia v. Marcus Lillard trial. He is charged with felony murder, aggravated assault, involuntary manslaughter, and reckless conduct.

From opening arguments to closing statements, the State contends that Marcus Lillard had a history of strangling women during sex and did strangle his girlfriend Marianne Shockley on Mother’s Day 2019, causing her death. They further argue that his conduct was reckless by not calling 911 for nearly two hours.

The defense purports that there is no evidence that sex took place that night, and if it did, there is no evidence that it was caused by Marcus Lillard. Hear all of the evidence and testimony from the trial and decide for yourself if Marcus Lillard is guilty or not guilty.

    Nowhere to be Seen

    Nowhere to be Seen

    Crime scene photos and evidence show disarray with a broken bracelet, glasses, and unknown drinks around the pool deck. The GBI searched the woods but did not find any evidence of tools that could have been used to conceal Marianne’s death. Two respiratory therapists and an EMT testify about calls, messages, and texts received from Marcus Lillard into the early morning hours of Mother’s Day.

Pat in Redondo ,

Can someone else read the script, PLEASE!!

I want to get into this story, but my ears are bleeding. It’s like a 6 y.o. is reading a homework assignment!!

Ridiculously monotone

I started listening to the 48 Hours podcast about this case. At the beginning of that podcast, the Blood Town podcast was referenced. I decided to listen to Blood Town instead of the 48 Hours podcast. I listened to 5 minutes of the first episode and couldn’t take it anymore. The host has the most boring and monotone voice I have ever heard. There is no way I could listen to two seasons of this show. Back to 48 Hours I go.

Wanted to hear about a murder

This is the most boring podcast I have ever listened to. I’m 6 episodes in and all I know is Ms Shockly was killed. Everything else is a history of “Bloodtown.” Don’t waste your time.
