New date set for former Duke Lacrosse accuser Crystal Mangum murder trial
July 2, 2013

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- A new trial date was set Tuesday in the Crystal Mangum murder case. The woman who once falsely accused Duke Lacrosse players of rape is charged with stabbing her boyfriend to death.

Mangum made a brief court appearance Tuesday morning. She's currently free on bond and now set to go to trial November 12.

The date was pushed back from July to give Mangum's latest attorney time to review the case. Mangum has gone through two other attorneys - who both asked to be removed from the case - and even represented herself for a time.

Mangum is charged with stabbing Reginald Daye with a kitchen knife during an argument in April 2011. Daye died ten days later. Mangum claims it was all in self defense - and that a medical error is blamed for Daye's death.

Durham attorney Scott Holmes now has four months to prepare her defense. She's charged with first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and larceny.

Duke lacrosse accuser found guilty of murder
November 22, 2013

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — The woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape was convicted of second-degree murder Friday in the stabbing death of her boyfriend.

The jury deliberated for about six hours over two days before reaching its verdict in the trial of 34-year-old Crystal Mangum, who was sentenced to between 14 years and 18 years in prison.

Killed was 46-year-old Reginald Daye, who was stabbed on April 3, 2011. He died of complications 10 days later.

Mangum claimed the stabbing was a case of self-defense, saying Daye was beating her in a jealous rage when she grabbed a knife and "poked him in the side."

Assistant District Attorney Charlene Franks told the jurors during closing arguments that the evidence did not back up Mangum's story.

From false rape accuser to murderer …

34 year old Crystal Mangum was found guilty of second degree murder by a jury on Friday in the stabbing death of her boyfriend, Reginald Daye. Mangum stabbed her boyfriend, Reginald Daye on April 3, 2011, in which 10 days  later died from complications. Mangum claimed the stabbing was a case of self-defense; however, the jury did not believe her. She was sentenced to between 14 years and 18 years in prison. It is simply amazing how some people seem to just not be able to stay out of trouble.

The Duke Lacrosse Player Still Outrunning His Past
March 25, 2014

When four Duke University lacrosse players were falsely accused of rape, in 2006, the media descended on Durham, North Carolina, quickly turning the case into a story of race and privilege. Most of the country all but assumed their guilt, thanks, in part, to an e-mail—violent, profane, and referencing Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho—sent by sophomore defenseman Ryan McFadyen. Never charged, McFadyen speaks to contributing editor and fellow Duke alumnus William D. Cohan, about putting his past behind him.

Mangum appeals murder conviction in boyfriend's stabbing death
Posted December 31, 2014, Updated January 1, 2015



DURHAM, N.C. — Crystal Mangum, most widely known as the woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape, is appealing her conviction of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of her boyfriend.

In a Dec. 29 court filing, a lawyer for Mangum says the judge should not have allowed the jury to hear evidence about a February 2010 attack on another man, claiming it tainted the trial. Attorney Ann Petersen is asking the court to reverse the conviction and allow her client to have a new trial.

Mangum claims the April 2011 stabbing of her boyfriend, 46-year-old Reginald Daye, was a case of self-defense, saying Daye was beating her in a jealous rage when she grabbed a knife and "poked him in the side." Daye died 10 days later of complications at Duke University Hospital.

A seven-man, five-woman jury found Mangum, 34, guilty of second-degree murder on Nov. 22, 2013. Superior Court Judge Paul Ridgeway sentenced her to nearly 18 years in prison.
