Christopher Lee in court for Erin Corwin case

6:26 a.m. PDT October 29, 2014

A court appearance is scheduled Wednesday morning for a former High Desert Marine suspected of killing another Marine's wife and dumping her body in a mine shaft.

Christopher Lee will appear in San Bernardino County Superior Court in Joshua Tree as a formality in advance of a preliminary hearing.

...In addition to murder, Lee has been charged with a special circumstance of "lying in wait." This allegation, which argues that Lee planned Erin's death and then lured her into a trap, makes Lee eligible for the death penalty, if convicted.

Trial of Chris Lee may move out of High Desert

Brett Kelman, The Desert Sun 5:08 p.m. PST December 2, 2014


An attorney for homicide suspect Christopher Lee said Tuesday he may try to move his client's trial out of the High Desert because the jury pool has been saturated by widespread media coverage of Erin Corwin's death.

..."We are considering that because of the pre-trial publicity that is already out there," Kaloyanides said. "But I haven't made that decision, yet."

...During the court hearing Tuesday, Judge Rod Cortez approved a request to release Corwin's body, which has been held for months for an independent forensic examination. The body will now be returned to Corwin's mourning family.

Erin Corwin's body will be released to her family

After being held for months for forensic analysis, the body of Erin Corwin will finally be released to her mourning family.

A California judge approved the release during a court hearing Tuesday morning after being assured the analysis has been completed. Corwin's body was found in August at the bottom of a mineshaft in a remote section of the High Desert. The 19-year-old Marine wife, originally from Oak Ridge, had been missing since June 28, setting off a seven-week search by local, federal and military authorities

The man accused of killing Corwin, ex-Marine Christopher Lee, made a brief appearance at the court hearing, but said nothing. Lee wore the orange jumpsuit of a prisoner. He was unshaven, and had longer hair than when he was arrested three months ago.

Prosecutors are still considering whether they will pursue the death penalty in Lee's case, Deputy District Attorney Sean Daugherty said.

Christopher Lee to return to court in March

Colin Atagi, The Desert Sun  12:14 p.m. PST January 6, 2015

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for a former Marine accused of killing Erin Corwin, a woman whose 2014 disappearance sparked a massive search that ended when her body was found in a mine shaft.

Christopher Lee's hearing is scheduled to take place March 4 in San Bernardino County Superior Court in Joshua Tree.

Superior Court Judge Rod Cortez set the date Tuesday during a routine court appearance that Lee attended. Lee's attorney had requested the preliminary hearing take place the first week in March.

~Snipped~

A motion hearing also is scheduled for March 4. The details of what will be discussed wasn't shared during Tuesday's brief hearing, and Kaloyanides was not immediately available after the appearance.

Sean Dougherty, a San Bernardino County deputy district attorney, told The Desert Sun he anticipated two motions could be presented, one to suppress evidence and another to move Lee's trial out of the high desert.

Erin Corwin expected proposal the day she disappeared

Brett Kelman, The (Palm Springs, Calif.) Desert Sun 12:55 a.m. EDT April 3, 2015

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — Erin Corwin thought she was being taken into the desert for a marriage proposal. Excited, she texted a friend in Tennessee, eager to share the big news.

"The location is only half the surprise," Corwin texted. "He said he's honestly not sure how I'm going to react … Seriously, I don't know why he would drag me to a very special place … for a big dumb surprise."

Corwin's texts about Chris Lee were happy, sprinkled with emoticons and "LOLs."

She was oblivious to the fact that she was about to die.

This is so terribly sad.
Neither of them were free to engage upon any relationship as they were both married.
IMO, Lee's wife was aware of the "other" and helped plan her death.
Corwin was the most injured (outside of the victim herself).
He was really completely unaware his wife was seeing the neighbor, may have been pregnant and not necessarily with his child, and the wife was hoping to leave him to marry someone else.
IMO, she was too young and immature for marriage to Corwin and was wanting to date others...

I don't know if the military can revoke or change the honorable discharge Lee received.
Lee murdered Corwin just days before Lee was officially discharged.

Lee attorney seeks removal of judge from murder case


Posted: Wednesday, June 3, 2015 9:27 am | Updated: 9:58 am, Wed Jun 3, 2015.

By Kurt Schauppner The Desert Trail | 0 comments

JOSHUA TREE — David Kaloyanides, the attorney defending Christopher Brandon Lee, the accused killed of Marine wife Erin Corwin, is seeking to remove Judge Rod Cortez from the case.

He said this week he hopes a court of appeal will issue a ruling on his writ of mandate seeking Cortez’ removal from the case, in time for the next pre-trial hearing, set for  8:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 30, in Dept. M2 of the courthouse in Joshua Tree.

Kaloyanides previously asked Judge Rod Cortez to recuse himself from officiating at the trial. Cortez, at a hearing on May 22, denied the request, saying it was not filed in a timely manner.

New judge for accused murderer

No reason given by attorney for Christopher Brandon Lee
By Eva Knott, July 9, 2015

Tuesday (July 7), news broke that a three-judge panel has unanimously decided to allow Christopher Brandon Lee to change judges before the start of his murder trial.

...The judges decided that it was not clearly communicated that judge Rodney Cortez had been assigned the case for all matters, which would include the prelim heard last April and then the upcoming trial, and therefore the defense attorney’s request for a different judge was not made too late.
