BEDFORD, Va. — A counsel for a convicted sex delinquent who pleaded guilty to transgression murder in the 1975 deaths of two immature Maryland sisters says the man insists he didn’t sexually attack or kill the girls.
Lloyd Lee Welch Jr. entered guilty pleas Tuesday to two depends of first-degree transgression murder. That crime is tangible as a killing that occurs during the elect of a felony. In this case, the girls were killed after being kidnapped from a selling core in Wheaton, Maryland.
Welch was accused of snatching 12-year-old Sheila Lyon and 10-year-old Katherine Lyon in Mar 1975.
Under a defence agreement with prosecutors, Welch certified that he participated in the abduction of the girls, but continued to repudiate that he participated in their passionate attack or in their killings. Prosecutors have named other members of Lloyd’s family as persons of interest, but have not charged anyone else in the case.
Prosecutor Wes Nance pronounced Welch’s credit is “open for questioning.” Nance pronounced Welch’s comment of who was concerned in the girls’ abduction, passionate attack and killing changed regularly during interviews with police over the last several years.
