    Wow great job SuziQ
    I just realized it is about to start for VC, each one seems harder to watch. Honestly I don't think I could be a juror on this case I know that is wrong, but it just bothers me for weeks watching it online, I can't imagine being in the court room. This is one of them cases you never forget. Plus I could put her to death without going through all this.

    BBM. I was thinking the same thing tonight. I really feel for the jurors. Such a responsibility they have.

    Does anyone know what was decided on the "journal?" Is it in or out?

    There was a hearing a few weeks ago in which it was brought up. The judge said that he had read it and there were references to what happened.

    Here (http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2010/ma...-kept-journal/) is an account of the hearing where the journal was discussed.

    Judge Baumgartner said: "I've read it and it certainly seems to be relevant to this incident."

    The story says the prosecutors will have to legally connect the journal to Coleman for it to be used.

    I was just thinking how bad I feel for the parents of this young couple, here I am knowing I will be depressed and upset for a few weeks after this trial and yet these poor parents have to sit there time after time, not weeks.........years. I don't know which would be worse to be the parents of Channon or to be the parents of Venessa, I would feel so ashamed. I certainly couldn't look Channon's parents in the face and ask the jurors to spare my daughters life!

    WS has been down for the past hour. Pros read the charges and judge is giving the jury instructions.

    Chris and Channon's parents are there.

    There is a couple in back on the defense side. The woman looks just like Vanessa. Her parents maybe?

    Coleman is not charged w/ entire indictment. She is not accused in carjacking that started crime spree #cntrial

    State to read indictment, which is waaaay long and judge will give prelim legal instructions b/f opening stmts #cntrial

    Defense Lavit - wants jury to know feds treated Coleman as witness only, judge says fine on cross-exam #cntrial

    Prosecutor TK wants block intro of fed immunity deal inked 4 Coleman, judge to rule later. #cntrial

    State says has handwriting expert on journal, judge warns if mention journal b/f his OK "u do so at own peril" #cntrial

    Vanessa has totally new 'do. Gone is the explosion of hair, replaced by flat-ironed, sleek look #cntrial
