Watch WSMV News Channel 4 Nashville’s coverage of the preliminary hearing held in Nashville, Tennessee, on May 1, 2024, where we as the defense were able to begin the process of telling the more complete story surrounding the allegations against our client, Mr. Cornelius, that had not previously been reported.

At the preliminary hearing we presented witness testimony and photographic evidence which revealed that on the night in question, prior to the very brief surveillance video snippet introduced by the State, Mr. Turner had been removed from Tin Roof once that night and had reentered Tin Roof without permission to trespass and assault  Mr. Cornelius causing injury to Mr. Cornelius while ripping his clothing.
