    Thank you again Brown Rice for setting this thread up.
    I don't know, haven't read or heard, if this trial will be streamed. If anybody finds out please let us know.

    I don't know why this case hasn't gotten more attention. It seems like Casey Anthony has over-taken everything.

    Thank you so much BrownRice, for setting up this thread. I hope the trial will be streamed live, and I wonder which DA's will be trying this case. There was a local story on WRAL yesterday about cuts in the DA's office, budget cuts, and that DA's are 'having to answer their own phones'.

    I saw that news article too and it makes me so mad. The state of NC should NOT be cutting anything pertaining to education or crime--including the DA's office. Maybe we should volunteer one day a week to answer phones for them.........

    ".....He typically watched his stepdaughter and his 4-year-old child at night while his wife worked an overnight shift as a security guard, his family said shortly after his arrest. His wife was at work when police and paramedics found Cheyenne unconscious about 9 p.m. at the **** ****** ******** apartment, where he lived...."


    BBM

    Those words just give me chills. OMG - Is anyone looking into how that child is doing?

    These cases we see just get worse and worse. Who is raising this type of ~human being~??

    I was in the jury pool for this trial....had to stay 4 days and finally called for my individual voir dire. Though I would LOVE to sit on a DP murder trial jury, I simply could not for this one. Way too sick to even ponder. I told the judge I already formed an opinion and could not be impartial. He thanked me for my candor and I was released.
    When I was finally released 7-26-11, they had seated 6 jurors.
    Surely selection is complete by now? Apparently not, as there there is ZERO news about the trial anywhere.

    JTF, et al - - I looked here & there for "Joshua Stepp," and the last date of anything I saw was 7/19/11. Odd.

    I know Superior Court judges have some kind of seminar or conference, and the courthouse shuts down for a week, but seems to me that it is scheduled in Sept/Oct... Maybe something else like that is scheduled. No other ideas.

    I checked on the DOC site & I saw Stepp's previous convictions, etc, but no new convictions -- I thought maybe a plead-out, but surely, Shirley, that would have also made some media mention. Ya got me...

    Thanks for following -- yes, this is triple-sick, JTF. I would also jump at the chance to sit on a DP case, but on this sick thing, I don't see any way I could be fair, and I don't know if I would be the same person coming out of it.

    If this case were a fiction novel, I really don't think any house would publish it. There is not a he!! that could make his punishment in any way equal to this abomination.

    Take a breath, man -- I'm glad you're outta there.

    Do we have a thread on this in the Crimes/Spotlight forum? I'm gonna go look.

    Salem

    ETA: I couldn't find a thread. Would have been nice just for the history. Oh well.

    Thanks, Salem -- It would be good to have a place for it there.

    My comments to JTF above had to with "researching" outside sources (WRAL, N&O, etc., etc.) and not WS sources.

    Can't find any local news on the trial.
    It's my own two cents. You don't have to read or like it.

    I guess WRAL isn't following this one live, online??? I was hoping to watch this trial, anyone have any links to watch it live? Opening statements have been given, defense claiming PTSD as the *excuse*.
