About Doug Lovell
Doug Lovell Mormon Sex Crime Case Summary
“Douglas Lovell had murdered Joyce Yost to prevent her from testifying against him in a 1985 sexual assault case.”
“Lovell claims The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meddled in his 2015 trial.”
“A former Latter-day Saint bishop who worked in the prison, John “Jack” Newton, said at the 2019 hearing that church leadership suggested it would be preferable if he did not testify on behalf of Lovell at the 2015 trial.”
“It was Kirton McConkie (church’s law firm) doing their job representing ecclesiastical leaders for the church, former bishops,” attorney Mark Field, an appellate lawyer in the Utah Attorney General’s Office representing the state, told the Deseret News. “There was nothing strange about any of that.”
