    ROLLA, Mo. — Opening arguments in the Chris Collings trial began this morning after jury selection was completed.

    I'm having a hard time with the claim CC drank 30 Smirnoff Triple Black's within a few hours then smoked a joint and drove. I asked my husband if he thought that was possible and he said no, he thought he would be passed out if not dead! He said the Smirnoff's (12 oz. I assume) have more alcohol per volume than a beer. I realize CC is a big guy but still...

    The defense isn't denying the rape and murder. It's questioning Collings' state of mind of the time, saying he drank 30 bottles of Smirnoff Ice wine coolers and smoked "a joint the size of this thumb."
    "Whoever actually killed Rowan, Mr. Collings says it was he. This was an intentional killing. We are not arguing that. We're arguing about what was his state of mind," says Defense Attorney Janice Zembles.

    Not trying to sound dense but what is Smirnoff Triple Black?

    In this article http://ozarksfirst.com/fulltext?nxd_id=616342 it says that he was drinking Smirnoff Ice. I drink that some in the summer time and it's not strong.

    Reading about the third person now, made me remember reading about this when it happened. Why aren't they reporting his name?

    MOO

    ETA: I googled Smirnoff Triple Black. Sorry, I'd never heard of it before.

    Angry

    Through photographic evidence, jurors were taken down in to the Fox Sinkhole where Ford's body was discovered. They also saw with their own eyes what happened to this young girl. Some of the photos were projected on a large screen in the courtroom.
