Oh yeah, someone else's presence would not lessen his guilt in the least. But I agree with you, I think he was alone in the house. I am willing to consider he had help disposing of evidence though. And I wouldn't be surprised if people on the jury thought the same thing

I don't notice the bulging vein in his forehead anymore. I'd have to say, he looks much better than his wife and unborn son, the way he left them.

Yeah, noticed he is in regular population...they don't like wife/baby killers. I don't think he will do well.

I wonder how long it'll be before someone wipes that smile off his face?!?! Definitely not the face of an innocent man being wrongly convicted.

I'd say the judge, Judge Stephens, pretty much made his feelings known in his remarks to JLY when denying his motion to set aside the verdict. Yup, Judge Stephens couldn't have made his feelings on this case and this defendant any clearer IMO. Most trials I've followed, the judge simply states 'motion denied'. But Judge Stephens took great effort to have his remarks written into the record. He had no qualms about his view on the jury's guilty of first degree murder verdict. IMO

Maybe that is why he is smiling. He is among other sadist, and sexual perverts. He probably has a lot in common with them. jmo

People always say that, but I don't think fellow killers care. It was predicted Scott Peterson would be attacked as soon as he got to San Quentin. Turns out, not so much. Unborn babies are not recognized by killers as "another person," and killing a wife does not cause the outrage we imagine it must. It outrages *us,* but to a fellow murderer? Eh. Just another killing. This moral code that is imagined in prisons is, I think, less about morals and more about how power is achieved (gangs, affiliations, fame, infamy).

I remember that part, but I could not specifically remember what she said about not talking.

So, I went back & played & re-played what the forewoman said about that, and here is what she said in that one instance, verbatim:

"The lack of the shirt, the lack of the shoes, the fact that he didn't talk and even - this is a man who is on trial for his life - and didn't even say, 'I am not guilty.' "

And she's right -- he never said that to anyone according to the evidence from his friends, his family, and yes, the LEO's, but the forewoman didn't mention the LEO's in connection with any of it.

Like everything else, context is everything -- we take from it what we will.

He also said the other parties had to be present at the crime. The juror said they concluded somebody else took care of Cassidy afterwards. That conclusion does not follow the instruction set by the Judge.

Can you post links for these statements? I thought we were reading the same article:

http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?se...cal&id=8571108

There isn't anything in what I'm reading that says specifically who took care of CY, whether it was an accomplice or JY himself.

As to reopening the case, what it says is this, which is not "may open" anything. It says they will listen to information.

"As for a possible accomplice, prosecutors said while the case is no longer active, they are willing to listen to any information that would warrant reopening it."

Berry, I'll drink to that!

Sooooooooo glad the Fishers finally got some justice and very relieved there won't be any more victims of this cold blooded murderer. He has no rights to his child anymore, btw. You know the saying, "dead to me?" Well in the eyes of the law in terms of any custody or parental rights, Jason Young is as good as 'dead.'

MF has full legal custody and all rights. She can legally adopt CY if she wants.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. It sounds like those on the jury made assumptions even though there was no evidence to support the assumptions. One person remarked that two people were probably involved, but there was no evidence of a second person in connection with Jason.

"Young, investigators said, planned an alibi: a business trip to Virginia with a stay in a hotel three hours away. But, how could he have made that drive, beat his wife to death, cleaned the blood off himself and his toddler daughter, and made it back to Virginia by 6 a.m. without leaving a trace of evidence?

"He would have had to have, and probably had, help," said Baldwin. "Probably did have help. That's what we had surmised. We were leaning strongly to that possibility."

He probably would have had help? Probably? Is that good enough? Shouldn't there be evidence that he had help ... a phone call, email, payment, something?

"Not so much that I didn't necessarily believe he had committed the murder, but I just didn't know if the evidence was heavy enough to make that conviction beyond a reasonable doubt."

Didn't know if the evidence was heavy enough to make a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt? Didn't know? How did she arrive at a guilty verdict if she didn't know if the evidence supported a guilty verdict?

"A pivotal point of discussion was evidence that little Cassidy Young had tracked her mother's blood around the house, but had no blood on her when her aunt found her at the murder scene."

What trial was she following? Where was it said that the child had no blood on her when found? That was said all over the internet before the trial, but during the trial we learned that she had blood on her feet and on her pyjamas. Why did she believe a rumor from prior to the trial rather than the evidence presented at trial?

When he testified during the first trial, he clearly stated that he did not kill his wife ... so he did say that he was not guilty.

The trial is over. From what I've heard, the jury followed the instructions they were given and *they* found in their own minds there was NO reasonable doubt. Period, end of story.

Jason Young murdered his *pregnant* wife. In effect he also killed his unborn son. I don't know whether or not prisoners who murder their children are more or less *popular* in prison. In my own personal views, someone who murders 'in the heat of passion' possibly, but someone who plans out a murder, against someone who is the most vulnerable, sound asleep in their bed, and is also carrying a life inside them, is at the bottom of the totem pole, so to speak. MOO

It is the end of the story ... except for the active investigations into jury misconduct regarding the actions of two jurors.

IMO and what I have heard about prison it would be more the fact he killed a baby (unborn or not she was still carrying a child). A lot of prison cliques don't like that and they are close to the bottom of the food chain. Child molesters are lower but killing a baby isn't something you would tell others about.

I'm not convinced that criminals view the termination of a fetus as the death of a child, but that's just my opinion. I don't know anything about criminals other than what I read in the paper, but I'm of the opinion that they really don't much care about other people's rights and probably don't really hold it against each other if they decide to murder a wife.
