“4th Victim not pictured”.

A lawyer for a man who authorities say killed four women in December 2011, locked their bodies in car trunks and abandoned them in Detroit says his client maintains his innocence in the slayings.

Twenty-four-year-old James Brown of Sterling Heights was charged today by Macomb County prosecutors with four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths.

Defense lawyer Jeffrey Cojocar says that from his review of evidence so far it appears the case is circumstantial. Cojocar suggested, however, that Brown may have incriminated himself during a videotaped interview with Detroit police earlier this year. The lawyer says he plans to fight to suppress statements to Detroit police.

Cojocar says his client has “maintained his innocence 100 percent with regard to the homicides.” The lawyer says he anticipates a long trial.

Until next blog, lets continue to send out our prayers for the loved ones of these victims.
