What Mark Lilly DID tell authorities was that his brother Ben killed Alexander DeFilippis after they, and a third man abducted the Tech student.
But as Judge Ray Grubbs considered whether to impose the jury's recommended death sentence, Mark called his earlier statement a lie, and said he's not sure WHO pulled the trigger.

Burley's surprise testimony came during his sentencing hearing this afternoon in Amherst County circuit court.
He'd been convicted of murdering Robin Burge and Jacqueline Carter in separate incidents in the winter of 1995.
On the stand today, Burley admitted he helped hide Carter's body, but claimed it was his friend.. Sammy Lee Brown.. who killed both women.
Burley spent a year in jail before coming forward with this information, but he left court today sticking to his story.

That's thanks to Cranwell's fellow Democrat Bill Clinton.

There was a time not so long ago when F-M radio was what you listened to when you couldn't find an A-M station you liked.

((During the 1960s and early 70s, WLLL was one of the most popular radio stations in central Virginia.
In those days, the station was located right here, on a hill west of Lynchburg. It had a powerful A-M signal that was on the air during daylight hours only.
But for a number of years, beginning in 1970, the station beamed out a clearer F-M signal around the clock.
If you wanted to hear rock 'n' roll after dark in Lynchburg, you tuned in WLLL F-M, and Dan Marks. ((VOICE OF DAN MARKS/FORMER WLLL DISC JOCKEY: I NEVER DREAMED THAT F-M WOULD BE SUCH A BIG COMMODITY. I MEAN, IT'S MONSTROUS.))
The 19-year old Pittsburgh native was fresh out of broadcasting school when he took over the six-to-midnight shift at WLLL in 1970. ((DAN MARKS/FORMER WLLL DISC JOCKEY: EVERYBODY LISTENED TO WLLL BACK THEN. BECAUSE THEY PLAYED ROCK 'N' ROLL.))
At WLLL, he won gold records for debuting songs that later became hits.
Yet he sometimes had to fight to keep the station rocking. ((DAN MARKS: WE HAD A STATION MANAGER THAT DIDN'T LIKE "LAYLA." DEREK AND THE DOMINOS BACK THEN, YOU KNOW, THE MONSTROUS HIT RECORD. I PLAYED IT ANYWAY. I MEAN, I WAS ALWAYS BEING CALLED IN, SAYING "MARKS, DON'T PLAY LAYLA!" BUT I WOULD CONTINUE TO PLAY IT. I MEAN, ALMOST TO THE POINT OF ALMOST LOSING MY JOB A COUPLE OF TIMES.))
The boss probably went off again when Marks impersonated a military officer, called a McDonald's, and ordered 10-thousand burgers to go. ((DAN MARKS: I THINK THAT'S WHY PEOPLE LIKED ME AT THE TIME, BECAUSE I WAS DIFFERENT. I DIDN'T JUST SIT THERE LIKE A BUMP ON A LOG AND PLAY MUSIC.))
Today there's a new WLLL on the air, playing gospel music.
Marks is now a freelance deejay, but he's also back on the F-M airwaves, playing oldies on the weekends at WRDJ/WLDJ.
He's finding a new audience with the songs that once got him into trouble. ((DAN MARKS: I DID A PARTY LAST SUMMER. SIXTH AND SEVENTH GRADERS. WHAT DID THEY WANT TO HEAR? THE BEATLES. THE ROLLING STONES. ALL THAT STUFF. PEOPLE LOVE IT. IT'S SOMETHING THAT'LL NEVER DIE.))
And Dan Marks says he'll play it as long as a station will put him on the air.
