Becky Watts' trial: The evidence so far
October 17, 2015
THE heartbreaking trial of Becky Watts reached its eighth day this week.
The jury at Bristol Crown Court has heard details of how the 16-year-old's stepbrother Nathan Matthews and his girlfriend Shauna Hoare are alleged to have kidnapped and murdered the teenager. They both deny the charges.
Her body parts were found in a shed in Barton Court in March.

Becky Watts trial latest: Matthews tells court of the moment he killed Becky
October 27, 2015
Warning readers may find some of the content in this article distressing or upsetting
Nathan Matthews told a court he had been planning for a couple of months to teach Becky Watts a lesson.
Matthews has resumed giving evidence in his murder trial and has explained why he planned to kidnap his 16-year-old step-sister.
He told the jury he had thought of "trying to scare Becky" for a few months and planned to "get her in the suitcase" then get her in the car.

Having quickly skimmed today's testimony a couple of quick observations.
1. NM mentions things not going according to 'The Plan' not 'My Plan'.
2. NM mentions doing what he did (dismemberment) to 'protect everybody'. Who does he mean by everybody? He claims to have acted entirely alone.
3. He can't explain why things happened they way they did, vague on details in many many areas.
4. His story about handcuffing her and putting her into the suitcase is not compatible with her injuries. According to his story she appears to have completely cooperated until he placed in the suitcase. Yet the forensic evidence shows that she put up a hell of a fight.
5. He appears to be trying to remember a story he is meant to be sticking to.
6. It takes 3 or 4 minutes to smoke a cigarette, 5 if you push it. It doesn't take 20 minutes. Yet conveniently SH takes more than the time it takes to kill Becky, hide her body and clear up. Yeah right.
7. Where was he planning to get the £10k from if the Police failed to find the body?Using Tapatalk

there is a problem with his story from the word go. he enters the house with suitcase, black bag, hand cuffs, stun gun, sellotape and mask.
he places the suitcase in the spare room. puts mask on and has sellotape ready in his hands when Becky opens the door.
he used the sellotape around Becky's mouth. perhaps he had the hand cuffs in his pocket, but what about the stun gun? where is that? when does he use it and how does he hold it while wrapping a roll of tape around Becky's mouth? did he take scissors to cut the tape? or use his teeth? bit awkward with a mask on. and he doesn't use the sellotape just this once either. there's more on Becky's eyes and then joining the eyes and mouth.
and then suddenly he's forcing her in to the case. he doesn't mention how he got the case there or taking her to the spare room, unless none of the reporters mentioned it. was there room in the spare room for this struggle he talks of with getting Becky in the case?
I think this is the spare room -
Becky didn't sustain 40 injuries by compliantly kneeling and then with her hands cuffed behind her back, wriggling and kicking a bit when he tried to get her in a suitcase.

Just bringing over my post from the end of the last thread

And a point about feeding the rabbit. Someone said that it only takes a minute to feed a rabbit. But it might be a different matter if it involves a two-year old child and a bag of lettuce.

I've just caught up on 2 days worth of posts in this thread as well as the UK crimes against children Facebook posts and wanted to add my thoughts.
Re the fainting thing NM referred to, sadly that was a game that was played when I was at school (I'm 33 so a few years older than NM) and I vaguely remember a story about a child dying from doing this that floated about at the time and scared us all into not doing it.
NMs wording around 'the plan' and 'protecting people' leads me back to my initial thoughts last week/week before that he is covering for SH. I agree with many posters that he should be able to remember and go into more details than he has so his statements and words in court don't really add up for me. A huge part of me still believes SH was involved in the killing of RW but perhaps NM took care of the covering up to protect her/their child and unborn children. JMO.

And while I think about it, his reason for killing Becky was, so he said, that his mask slipped and he panicked because she saw him. Nowhere in his version today did he mention Becky seeing him. He said he told her to keep her eyes shut, put his hands over her eyes and taped them shut. Where has the reason for the killing gone to?

I don't mean this to sound flippant but even the fact that he didn't have to spend five minutes trying to find the start of the sellotape should be enough enough to show that he is lying, let alone everything else that appeared to be a figment of his mind.

If, as NM says, he planned on taping Becky's mouth shut, handcuffing her, and placing her in a suitcase, and then taking her to a wooded area. She could easily have suffocated in the suitcase, so she would have died anyway.
He also said he put cellotape over her eyes - I don't know what was the purpose of this, she would have known it was him by this time (probably heard their car arrive and who else would be in her house), and he would have needed assistance to do this, cellotape is very sticky and hard to manage, let alone using it on a live person.
Why try and disguise his appearance anyway - was he going to reveal himself when they reached the "wooded area". Did he think she would keep quiet about her ordeal?
I don't believe a word he says anyway. I think the plan was to kidnap Becky and take her back to their place, so all this wooded area and other stuff IMO is just something he has made up.

Sorry if any of this has been mentioned- have not had time to catch up- just thoughts- and if anyone wants to catch me up- much appreciated...
Things that hit me today...
3rd interview with SH- how do we know you are not involved etc? Her first response is about DNA- not horror and recoil- not OMG I could not kill and cut up a child or a family (extended kinda) member- DNA
NM is apparently in so much pain he can sneeze and be incapacitated... but in 20 minutes he can 'accidently' kill a child who put up some fight and carry that 9 stone dead weight down the stairs with no issues and he is NOT a big guy....
The bedroom window looks out over the hutch- SH hears nothing?
Who does without a bathroom for three days with a toddler and doesn't question why their partner is there all the time sawing stuff? I am no plumber but I know you do not normally saw a toilet if it is blocked without water (at best) everywhere!
She is abused? Ok so she can give him the marching orders over his hoarding habit and looking at her fb- sorry now- she does not fit the idea I have of a woman intending to leave or even fear her partner. Fat jokes yes- believe that bit- lots of ref to people spending money owed to you etc.
The searches- she had no idea according to her interview (2nd one) - she posted DG status from DAYS before mentioning searches! She knew, I knew, everyone knew- she was in no bubble.
