Wow great job SuziQ
I just realized it is about to start for VC, each one seems harder to watch. Honestly I don't think I could be a juror on this case I know that is wrong, but it just bothers me for weeks watching it online, I can't imagine being in the court room. This is one of them cases you never forget. Plus I could put her to death without going through all this.

BBM. I was thinking the same thing tonight. I really feel for the jurors. Such a responsibility they have.

Does anyone know what was decided on the "journal?" Is it in or out?

There was a hearing a few weeks ago in which it was brought up. The judge said that he had read it and there were references to what happened.

Here (http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2010/ma...-kept-journal/) is an account of the hearing where the journal was discussed.

Judge Baumgartner said: "I've read it and it certainly seems to be relevant to this incident."

The story says the prosecutors will have to legally connect the journal to Coleman for it to be used.

Characteristics of jurors key in Coleman's trial

Lawyers carefully scrutinize panel in death penalty case

I was just thinking how bad I feel for the parents of this young couple, here I am knowing I will be depressed and upset for a few weeks after this trial and yet these poor parents have to sit there time after time, not weeks.........years. I don't know which would be worse to be the parents of Channon or to be the parents of Venessa, I would feel so ashamed. I certainly couldn't look Channon's parents in the face and ask the jurors to spare my daughters life!

WS has been down for the past hour. Pros read the charges and judge is giving the jury instructions.

Chris and Channon's parents are there.

There is a couple in back on the defense side. The woman looks just like Vanessa. Her parents maybe?

Coleman is not charged w/ entire indictment. She is not accused in carjacking that started crime spree #cntrial

State to read indictment, which is waaaay long and judge will give prelim legal instructions b/f opening stmts #cntrial

Defense Lavit - wants jury to know feds treated Coleman as witness only, judge says fine on cross-exam #cntrial

Prosecutor TK wants block intro of fed immunity deal inked 4 Coleman, judge to rule later. #cntrial

State says has handwriting expert on journal, judge warns if mention journal b/f his OK "u do so at own peril" #cntrial

Vanessa has totally new 'do. Gone is the explosion of hair, replaced by flat-ironed, sleek look #cntrial

IMO, she doesn't sound like herself your right Suzi...maybe she's sick again...wasn't she sick during the GT trial too?

I thought it was just me; that the two cups of coffee hadn't saturated my brain yet. I was thinking that if I didn't already know so much about this case (like maybe some of the jurors) that I really wouldn't understand what she was talking about or just where she was trying to go with her speech.

I know it was one of the later trials. She had the flu, cold or something.

Wow. Did you all catch all the bailiffs between Vanessa and the galley? Wonder whats up with that?

The judge seems off this morning as well. Putting off ruling on items, not prepared to do so, doesn't want to, etc.

Defense up.

Vanessa is going to testify?

Defense talking about Stacy Lawson. Weird start to defense opening argument. Clarifying facts brought up by TK. Basically saying Stacy was leaving for other reasons....Fwiw he says. His voice is shaking and he's rambling.

Hmmmm, he's got Natasha and Stacy confused I think. Saying gun found under Stacy's daughter's bed. Stacy lived elsewhere with her mom didn't she?

Seems, like this attorney wants to make Stacy a scapegoat.

Now talking about about all the agencies coordinating in the investigation and VC being placed in protective custody.

Wow, this guy is way scattered. Seems like he's sick, he might pass out or something.

Between him and TK, I'd be so confused if I was the jury.

I hope this guy is going to be ok!
