Elevated crime

The Chicago Sun-Times reported on the murder charges against Atlanta dentist Barton Corbin, and quoted UGA law professor Ron Carlson about the media’s interest in the case. “It includes the aspects of jealousy, obsessiveness, a close relationship between the parties involved, and perhaps most importantly, very attractive people who were killed,” he explained. “The pictures of a very pleasant-looking Jennifer Corbin and also the beautiful pictures of Dolly Hearn have helped to elevate this particular domestic violence case over others.”
