He is then put in protective custody while the District Attorney's office tries to convict him of an unsolved murder which he had indeed committed.

After he recuperates from his injuries, he is found guilty of the murder charge, and sentenced to death. He never confessed raping and killing those victims before Oz, not even in front of Toby. I think he confided in Toby about the killings, or at least didn't deny them.
OZ: Tobias Beecher/Chris Keller
Toby knew about them and lied to Katherine McClain about them, which is what eventually caused her to break up with him. And after Keller killed Ronnie Barlog, Toby and he talked about it quite openly.
It's a little twisted, but I think Keller liked that he could confide in Toby, and that Toby still loved him despite the horrible things he did. Which is kind of twisted I loved the way McManus said "I'm baaack", must've been really annoying but great at the same time for the prisoners Click to expand I loved that, too!
I was like, "Hell, yeah! Yeah, I always found that amusing, and enjoyed that there were more layers to it than that. Toby was drowning in self-hatred over the death of his son and Keller was hurt by the fact that Toby thought he was capable of hurting him Clayton turned out to be really obnoxious. I liked his little crazy speech after breaking out though, he had completely lost it.
Querns, I really disliked. I hated Clayton right from the beginning--his attitude of entitlement never sat well with me. And then he was such an ass to everyone once he got fired from Oz and shot Devlin I don't know what it is about Querns I really liked--I think it had to do with the actor. He just had so much personality! The opinions on him sure are! Wow, that's a little twisted I'm not sure if it's true but I read that even Fontana found it partly funny and that's why he wrote that quote of Vern about how Peter should compare his size with Adebisi's could be someone's personal theory on TOm's opinion That's probably dark writer humor.
I mean, in a show that twisted, sometimes you've got to have a sense of humor And the other comments about him were mainly in the direction of "poor Schibetta" and "he looks gorgeous!
XD Alvarez seems to be really popular with the fans, just like Ryan! I kind of wonder where I fall in with the fans I love Beecher and Keller, but I just can't stand Alvarez! I do like Ryan, though. Said and Adebisi are probably my other favs.
And Vern, oddly enough. Sexy is definitely the more fitting word to describe Keller than cute. XD Toby is cute, but just like with Ryan, the hype about him in fandom is so big that it almost annoys me by now! I do like both of them, but I don't think either is so perfect like many seem to picture them.
It's funny how people seem to forget they're still capable of the worst deeds and have already committed them - of course, Ryan a lot more so than Toby.
IMO, the show clearly shows that Keller is a criminal; a charming one, but nonetheless a murderer With Ryan, his nonchalant way of plotting and killing and always getting away with it unnerves me sometimes.
