I guess we'll hear more today about connecting the evidence to blood on the wall, shoes that don't fit, children that were drugged, hoses and friends that were monsters.
I was thinking about Michelle Money driving a lawn mower and pulling Jason Young around on a skate board while everyone else declined to participate. Were they looking for a moment alone or were they pretending to be 12 year olds with toys? Jason sleeping with MM while she was trying to get pregnant is a bit like that married guy (alienation of affection guy) sleeping with Nancy Cooper while she was trying to get pregnant. Are they thinking that it's like stud fees at the racquet court or gym - status?
In the Casey Anthony trial, the DA has very little if any Proof that CA murdered her child. However, the biggest factor in deciding guilt has to be her behavior during and after the time the child went missing. With that being said, same thing withJY, his behavior both leading up to and especially after MY's murder is (IMHO) his behavior. It is compelling evidence in and of itself. Behavior is huge.
Behavior of witnesses and suspects is significant when solving murders. MM found herself to be a murder suspect and complained about it in court. What did she expect? She was sleeping with her friend's husband, leading him on, commiserating about marriage, professing their love and suddenly, her friend is murdered. She kept contact with him even after the murder and her performance in court leaves much to be desired - particularly in terms of being forthright. She is deception, evasive and cutesy. I bet she can talk for two hours and say nothing.
Whenever MM raised her eyebrows and smiled (not sure who the look was directed to), it drove me nuts! I just kept thinking how inappropriate it was for this case.
Looks like one replacement with no fault.
The juror without the car didn't show up. Sound just turned off while the judge discusses this.
While we're waiting for them to figure it out, someone asked for pics of the girlfriend yesterday ...
Defense questioned the completeness and suggested ineptness of WCSO during opening statements, they ignored or missed important evidence. As such juror cannot get a ride from any sheriff and no juror will be able to for quite some time.
Sound familiar WSers?
Heard that somewhere else recently (about an inept and incomplete L.E. agency) as claimed by a defense team?
< btw, Sound on ABC-11 feed did not turn off at all. I could hear the juror's last name as well as the alternate's last name who will be put in. >
Juror without transportation is excused, due to a lack of further transportation.
And ... the defense is unprepared and asking for a block of time to review.
New DNA reports available, defense asking for 10 minutes to review before court resumes. It's refreshing that the defense team specifically said this was not the state's fault, they just received the reports too. No accusations and no kittens, unlike the defense in the BC case.
Judge Stephens does NOT like making juries *wait*. My hubby is in Smithfield today, also not a happy camper, as he hates jury duty.
Allright ... the judge will explain it to the jury, and they'll bring on the next witness after 15 minutes ... because the defense requested 15 minutes to review notes regarding the next witness. Mr somebody has stepped down, which may shuffle the jury to 8 women 4 men.

It's refreshing when a defense team actually shows a modicum of class and doesn't throw daily tantrums escalating to birthing litters of kittens. Very refreshing indeed. Makes a case proceed faster too, in case no one had noticed. In addition, it helps because the jury doesn't come to despise the defense team.
I recommend the court not appoint a juror who has no direct transportation to the courthouse again. Kind of a given if they have to depend on a ride from some 3rd party person in a trial lasting longer than a week, there will come a day that ride doesn't work out.
