    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Jake Collins pleaded not guilty to killing his wife Crystal Collins.

    Court documents alleged that Jake Collins beat his wife to death with a frying pan during an argument on New Years Day.

    But while in court Tuesday, the Bozeman denied killing his wife with what investigators said was a cast-iron frying pan.
    As per Montana State Law deliberate homicide carries a wide sentence from 10 to 100 plus years which means, life in prison or in some cases death.

    The big question surrounding this case is whether prosecution will seek the death penalty.

    "We just received the coroners report Sunday night and there are other reports we are waiting for with regard to the autopsy. So we will need that information at least before we make a decision to proceed in addition we would want to get the families input on that as well. We need additional reports meeting with the attorney general that decision is off in the future," he said.

    State not seeking death penalty against Bozeman man accused of killing wife

    http://www.bozemandailychronicle.com...ab96c9aad.html

    During a scheduling hearing before District Judge Holly Brown on Tuesday, Gallatin County Attorney Marty Lambert said he is declining to seek the death penalty for 32-year-old Jake Collins, who is charged with deliberate homicide in the death of his wife Crystal Collins, 32.

    Collins has pleaded not guilty to that charge as well as a felony tampering with evidence charge he’s facing in the case. He remains in the Gallatin County jail on $750,000 bail.

    Lambert declined to comment on why he opted not to seek the death penalty. He did, however, say that he discussed the decision at length with Crystal’s family and received a “wide spectrum of responses, which is normal and understandable.”

    Another scheduling hearing in the case is slated for April 18. No trial date has been set.

    No trial date yet for Bozeman man accused of killing wife with frying pan

    http://www.bozemandailychronicle.com...e6e77b24a.html

    A trial date has yet to be set for a Bozeman man accused of killing his wife on New Year’s after attorneys disagreed on how long the trial should last.

    In the meantime, at a scheduling hearing Tuesday, Gallatin County District Court Judge Holly Brown set a July deadline for attorneys to file any pre-trial motions and a status conference for August.

    Still no trial date for Bozeman man accused of killing wife

    http://www.bozemandailychronicle.com...1d1af3bb4.html

    Jackson told the judge that the defense intends to meet with Gallatin County Attorney Marty Lambert, who is prosecuting the case, and the defense’s expert witnesses in early October to discuss a possible resolution in the case.

    Lambert wanted the judge to set a trial date, saying Tuesday that he was concerned by the amount of time that’s gone by without a trial date being set. However, he said he did not fault the defense.

    Brown did not set a trial date Tuesday, instead opting to schedule another status conference for Nov. 7.
