(Newser) – Those assault with a deadly weapon charges Crystal Mangum was facing have been upgraded to full-blown murder charges. A grand jury formally indicted Mangum yesterday, following the Wednesday death of Reginald Daye, the boyfriend she is accused of stabbing, the News & Observer reports. Mangum, best known as the bogus victim in the Duke Lacrosse rape case, was arrested two weeks ago after allegedly stabbing Daye during an argument.

As a current Duke student, please move on past what happened five years ago. We have.

Why has this story's comments digressed into race & politics. ugh this site is so sophomoric sometimes. What does Jesse Jackson or Al Shrarpton or conservative christians have to do with this pathetic woman. As for Jesse & Al while I do not particularly like or agree with their agenda they were at the time trying to be the voice of what they thought was a rape victim. The Duke players were young stupid kids who made a foolish thing in hiring a stripper. It came back to blow up in their face when she being an unstable nut job lived up to her title. It begins & ends with Ms. Mangum.
