In September 2009, police arrested 22-year-old Davawn Robinson and charged him for the murder of Edgard Mercado, a CUNY professor who lived on Avenue C near East Eighth Street. According to the Post this evening, deliberations are set to start tomorrow morning. Robinson is accused of strangling Mercado. Robinson, who faces one second-degree murder count, has claimed that Mercado wanted to be strangled while having sex and that the death was accidental. Gay City News has more on the trial here.
