    The link below gives some interesting info about Lovette's previous conviction of 1st Deg Murder since he was under 18 y/o (he was 17) when he committed the crime against Eve Carson in 2008. It also gives a few more details about the Mahato murder case.

    Lovette wants to appeal his "re-sentence" to LWOP. He claims he didn't know that he had alternatives about his trial for the murder of Eve Carson. He said he didn't know that life with parole was possible.

    Re testimony transcripts. Sometimes it takes weeks for the court stenographer to type up the transcripts.

    In response to Boodles post I haven't seen a Judge yet allow a jury to see prior testimony. I think they are always told to rely on their memory and notes.

    Now do I always agree, not necessarily but that has seemed to be the case in all the trials I have watched! In this case there was so much I don't know or I don't remember. Did some of the juror's not pay attention? IDK

    IIRC Philip was a mumbler and hard to understand---transcript would have been nice! But basically all he did say was "he lied"--and TiTi--wall she said was I don't recall--nothing really with either of them.

    So that makes sense if they are going to review any testimony they would have review all of the testimony. That is what the trial was for, and they have to rely on their notes and their memory.

    I hope I stated that correctly.

    If it warrants and this court allows victim impact statements I wonder who will speak on behalf of the dead young man?

    I don't understand why all the evidence would have to be reviewed. If a juror is fuzzy about recalling something why not allow them to review what evidence they ask for to clear up the confusion.
