    Grand jury indictment is required for capital cases in Florida.

    http://www.floridasupremecourt.org/

    I downloaded flgrandjuryhandbook.rtf: ~snipped~

    Our constitution provides that no person shall be brought to trial for a capital crime except upon indictment of a grand jury. This means that no one may be prosecuted for a capital crime except by a vote of the grand jury. Except for capital crimes, the state attorney (or the statewide prosecutor) may initiate all other criminal charges. The grand jury of course may indict for any crime that the evidence justifies.

    Jarred Harrell in Court for Pretrial Hearing


    CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- The man who was arrested on child pornography charges and is now charged with murdering a 7-year-old girl, stood before a judge this morning.

    The judge listed the four charges Jarred Harrell now faces: first degree murder, kidnapping, sexual battery, and lewd or lascivious battery.

    The Florida Commision on Capital Cases has a number of publications specific to death penalty cases in Florida.

    http://www.floridacapitalcases.state...blications.cfm

    I find this one particularly helpful and interesting:

    Conducting the Penalty Phase of a Capital Case (2009)
    http://www.flcourts18.org/PDF/Eaton/..._Phase_Mat.pdf


    You can get lots of good information specific to Florida death penalty cases by reading through the jury instructions. Scroll through the left side column to get to the instructions for various crimes. The Homicide link will take you to death penalty as well as non-DP case instructions.

    The instructions are available in both Word and PDF format here:

    I found this:

    Harrell pleads not guilty in Somer Thompson case
    Harrell is being held in an isolated Clay County Jail cell without bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 26.

    Harrell also faces multiple child pornography charges in two other cases.

    He is being represented by public defender Kate Bidell, who declined comment after Harrell's arraignment.

    "I don't think I'll be saying anything," Bidell said.

    This the first time I've seen Harrel's attorney mentioned.
    Not sure if it's been posted before. Just thought I'd put it out there.

    Almost all the pics of Kate Bedell show her from the back, except the one where she appears with JH via CCTV in court.

    Here's a bit about her:
