Another 110 lecture wasted

Son denies killing mom
Accused murderer upset he couldn’t attend funeral

Well, that's just swell. What are we going to call him if, say, the charges are dropped or he's acquitted? Is he going to be an "acquitted murderer"?

When you call him an "accused murderer," you're calling him a murderer. That's sort of how the language works. You can't change it by sticking an adjective on the front. Please don't do this again.
