Looks like Komisarjevsky would like to plead guilty now. I wonder if the judge approved that?
Also, does anyone know who the 3rd person in this home invasion was and if they have gone to trial or if they will face trial?
no third person that I have ever heard of, and have followed this case from the start.
Hey, I thought this guy was gonna plea to save the dad/husband from more heartache. What happened?
I read in the Courant the other day that he will plead guilty if they don't go for the death penalty. There aren't 3 people - only hayes and Komisarjevsky.
Here is the motion filed
Jury selection is underway for September trial, but no jurors were chosen today.
I'm confused. Why would they be picking a jury in March - but the trial doesn't start until September?
This too shall pass
jury selection has been moving along, it has taken a while but they only have a new alternates alternates to select,
DP is still on the table,
Komisarjevskys attorneys appealing against Judges ruling that he can't proffer a guilty plea in exchange for no DP
I cannot understand why they just don't accept his plea and be done with it, LWOP would surely suffice,
more legal issues surrounding the release of defence witness list, and two more alternates selected, so they need just one more juror for the full set
Sure seems strange and risky to select a jury in a high profile case and then not start the trial for 3 months. Thats an awful lot of time for that jury to be contaminated (perhaps intentionally by the defense) and have to start over. Come September, they will all have to be re-questioned about their knowlege and opinions of the case.
Many times they would consult the family in a DP case. Maybe Dr. Petit wanted the DP left on the table
