Lee’s attorney, Arnold Reed, said his client was innocent. Reed said witnesses at a recent hearing in the first case were Cain’s family members, and noted that Conway described the suspect as standing 5-foot7 though Lee is 6-foot-1.
“You’ve got relatives of the co-defendant because they want to save their relative’s hide. The girls couldn’t even identify my client as being there. There’s a heck of a lot of difference between 5’7″ and 6’1″,” Reed said.
