    Trial - Leonard P. Gonzalez, Jr. UPDATE -- Found Guilty

    Live trial on In Session Next Week! Florida v Leonard Gonzalez Jr.
    http://insession.blogs.cnn.com/2010/...d-gonzalez-jr/

    I do wish that the media AND LE would stop labeling LPG, Jr. as the "mastermind", triggerman yes, mastermind IMO no.

    Billings Murder Suspect Scheduled To Stand Trial
    *snip* The judge has allowed News Five inside the closed door conference.

    State Attorney Bill Eddins says prosecutors will call 40 witnesses during the trial. Ashley Markham, Melanie Billings' daughter, will be the first witness to testify. Eddins told the judge he expects the state to take 2 1/2 to 3 days to present their case.

    I am surprised that Eddins predicts only a 2-3 day period in such a convoluted case. Let's see if a change of venue is granted.

    Geez, the discrepancies between media reports is scary....

    ABC 3 Top Stories
    Billings Murder Suspect's Trial Starts On Monday
    *snip* The pool of potential jurors will start at 200...
    That number will be whittled down to 12 over two days.
    Gonzalez's trial will start after that... and is expected last two weeks.

    I possibly could be too particular, but all media reports that the trial begins tomorrow. The jury selection has to come first so personally I find the reports misleading!

    Billings homicide: Jury selection begins for accused ringleader
    Kris Wernowsky • kwernowsky@pnj.com • October 25, 2010
    *snip* Circuit Judge Nick Geeker ordered 100 citizens to the courthouse this morning for jury selection. Members of the media are confined to an adjacent courtroom to observe the proceeding via a closed circuit television feed.
    Last week, the members of the jury pool received questionnaires with two pages of questions that asked them to address their feelings on the death penalty and their knowledge of the case at hand

    Jury selection began this morning in the trial of Leonard Patrick Gonzalez Jr. the man accused of shooting and killing Byrd and Melanie Billings.

    Circuit Judge Nick Geeker ordered 100 citizens to the courthouse this morning for jury selection. Members of the media are confined to an adjacent courtroom to observe the proceeding via a closed circuit television feed.

    Opening statements could begin as early as Tuesday depending on the speed at which the attorneys select their 12 jurors and two alternates.

    Trial start in Fla. slaying of pair with many kids
    By MELISSA NELSON
    *snip* ...none of the young children who were in the home the night of the slayings are expected to testify about what they saw that night...

    ...have asked Circuit Judge Nicholas Geeker to move the trial out of Pensacola. They say extensive local and national media coverage has tainted the jury pool. They point to national appearances by the slain couple's adult daughter on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and by Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan on CNN and other national television shows...
