    BRUNSWICK ó After the emotional testimony of Justin Ross Harrisí ex-wife, friends and family, his defense rested shortly before noon Friday on a soft note, following Harrisí decision not to take the stand in his own defense.

    [...]

    Court is scheduled to reconvene around 8:30 a.m. Monday at the Glynn County Courthouse, with two hours allowed to both sides for closing arguments. Following that, the attorneys will finish jury charge negotiations and Staley Clark will give that charge sometime Monday afternoon. If there is enough time left in the day, the case will then go to the jury for deliberations.

    Trial - Ross Harris #9

    I agree on the car seat - we have a whole thread devoted to it. It's just frustrating to see the misinformation - nobody have ever said his head was 3 inches OVER the seat. He is 3 inches taller than the car seat manufacturer guidelines. He wasn't in a proper seat. I was able to see my children in their infant carriers when they didn't exceed the measurements. IMO he was visible long before he outgrew the seat.

    But yea I agree and I'll try not to contribute to any more arguing over the seat LOL

    I was watching part of the Defense opening statements, and noticed at different time Ross would start to cry. He would start to cry when the focus was on him and and what had happened with Cooper. for example Kilgore played part of the police video when Ross was in the room by himself and he was acting strange ( or at least I thought he was).

    Do any of the rest of you find it odd that Ross can turn the water works on and off quick when it suits him. imho

    This is the first trial I've followed since JA - and I'd forgotten how time-consuming it can become! I come home from work, listen to the testimony from that day - then find out how many pages behind I am on WS and try to catch up reading. Usually, it's almost 11 pm or midnight by then (oh and between this I have to feed my family - tried to convince them to live on sandwiches and pizza for a few weeks but failed) - I sleep a bit, then the next day, I get behind all over again.

    I will have to take a vacation or retire before I get wrapped up in another one. This happened just walking distance from where I used to live, so I've had a personal interest in the outcome for a couple of years.

    We can argue about

    ---why Dr Diamond was a no show...

    ---whether the DT wanted Ross to testify or not...

    ---what was in those files that were sealed and that the State was trying to keep from the DT...

    ---why did Kilgore say ' on behalf off Ross we rest our case...' was Kilgore mad, tired or upset?...

    Hope -

    I noticed Kilgore yesterday saying "For what it's worth, I do not object." I took it as him expressing his frustration.

    LOL...sounds familiar. I am in California so if I want to hear the morning testimony, I have to wake up around 5:30 am... Many times my hubby wakes up at 7 to get ready for work, and sees me sitting with my headphones on the couch, huddled over the laptop. He thinks I am I told him about this case, and all he can say about me watching it is ' Isn't that unpleasant?' Why do you want to spend time on such an unpleasant experience?

    During trials I have to bring out the crockpot. Works great as a nice way to make a 'home cooked' meal with no muss or fuss. Best one is the chicken breast, white potatoes, carrots, green beans, marinara sauce, parmesan cheese, 8 hours low setting----everyone is happy at dinner time...

    What was your take on him saying ' On behalf of Ross, we rest our case.' I have never heard it worded that way before.

    I may be imagining it, but it almost sounded like he was blaming him for the early closing of their case?

    It is an interesting jury. I think there might be a lot of division. I hope it is not a hung jury in the end. There are equal number of men to women, which might be an interesting dynamic. But also 5 people with no children.

    I think this woman will be the key, perhaps:


    6. Married to a retired longshoreman, a registrar at a local high school. Two older sons and six grandchildren. She served on juries before, and was foreperson before. Not big on social media, her father killed in the line of duty as a police officer when she was 12. She says if she is on the jury she’ll make sure fellow jurors follow the law.




    It is possible that she will end up as the foreperson. She sounds like a very organized individual, being a registrar. So she can deal with paperwork and reading the fine print and the details very well. And she mentions following the letter of the law. So she will be a stickler for the wording of each line on the jury instructions.

    The key will be which 'side' does she lean towards? I think she might be able to sway people to her position if she feels they are uncertain...?

    So... back to Dr. Diamond. I still have no idea why he was cut from testimony at the last minute. On April 9 the State filed several motions regarding both Dr. Diamond's and Dr. Agharkar's testimonies. They are linked on the Court Chatter site:

    http://www.courtchatter.com/justin-r...-trial-archive

    I had a long post but deleted it since I'm not an attorney and decided it was best discussed by our two goto attorneys on the thread and/or members who have a clearer understanding than I do. In the following motion section 2 discusses hearsay and to my layperson's understanding seems to indicate that Ross needed to testify in order for Dr. Diamond and Dr. Agharkar to discuss what Ross told them during interviews:

    http://media.wix.com/ugd/943520_a39c...ddf4e6a29e.pdf

    If that's the case then it may be that Ross backed out of testifying at the 11th hour (or would that be the 9th hour? ) and therefore made it impossible for either expert to fully testify about their opinions. And if that's correct then the experts may have bailed or maybe the defense dismissed them since what they had planned to say would have been compromised.

    I agree.

    Context:

    Yesterdayís testimony, Stateís rebuttal, on the accuracy of the dollís head measurements.

    State: So my question was, did you have an opportunity to compare the measurement of the dollís head to the measurements that were in the medical records, as well as to the measurements that were in the MEís report.

    Detective: Yes I did.
    (Introduces photos)

    State: are these photos of you taking the measurements of the dollís head?


    Detective: Yes.

    Kilgore: For what itís worth, I do not object.

    State: the jury has already heard from (M.E.) Frist and (ME investigator Jackson about measurements takenÖ

    Kilgore: " Iím going to object to that. Judge, the State has continually objected to our introducing any evidence relating to the testimony of prior witnesses, so Iím going to object to their now wanting to do it."

    State: Iíll rephrase. Were you able to compare the measurements you took of the dollís head with those in the medical examinerís report.

    Detective: Yes, I was.

    Kilgore: " Iím going to object to that. I donít believe the medical examinerís report is in evidence (Ö.) so Iím going to object to the form of the question."

    State: I donít think there is anything improper about the question, given theyíve already heard from the medical examiner and Jackson confirming the accuracy of the measurementsÖ

    Kilgore: Iím going to object to that, the ďaccuracyĒ of those measurements.

    Staley: " Iím going to allow it, over objection. Jury, disregard the colloquy between counsel. Colloquy means what they say to each other."
    RIP, Cassini. To her tireless overseers- job well done.

    So I've been on the fence for a while. I think what seals the deal for me on malice murder is the nonchalant way Ross was in the holding cell in jail. I would be Ftfo if I was in jail, but even more so if I was there accused of killing my baby. Also, if my child had just died I wouldn't even know other people were in that room. I'd be a mess of emotion. The way he was slung back in the seat and seemed relaxed enough to make small talk makes me think he felt he was just waiting for release and had no thought they would jail him. Poor Cooper. May he Rest In Peace.
