    I live fairly locally and just now on the noon news (WSOC) they just announced that the grand jury indicted Elisa Baker for second degree murder. No details yet as this was breaking and they only mentioned it as a blurb.

    This is what they just said on the news with the reporter who had a copy of the indictment in his hand. This is paraphrased as I didn't have time to transcribe his words verbatim.....

    Charge: Second degree murder.

    Aggravating factors:
    1. The defendent (EB) had a history of violence physical and verbal against the victim.
    2. The defendent hid the victim from family prior to and after the offense.
    3. The defendent desecrated the victim's body to hinder prosecution of the offense.

    Are we to assume they really don't think Adam knew anything?? What other family would there be to hide her from locally??

    That was what I was just thinking. Interesting. We shall have to wait for the presser I guess. So close and yet so far. Hours to wait. After all the waiting for charges, they are here. Now I can hardly stand the few hours of wait before we get more detail. arghhh.

    And I assume she will blame it all on AB. Should be quite a show. All I want is justice for Zahra and those/it who did it behind bars for a very very long time!

    MOO

    Sweet precious Zahra. We all promised you that justice was coming. Though I'd love to see a harsher charge, I understand the second degree charge. Rest easy, precious child.

    Zahra, my gs was born sleeping this morning. Please watch over him, and give him all the love I had so wanted to. :blowkiss:

    I don't really want to get OT but it just makes you wonder if he REALLY is as much of a stooge as he appears to be if she was able to dupe him THAT bad. Something just doesn't add up for me. Maybe the press conference will help.

    If WSOC has a live feed, they are constantly talking about it on TV. I'm not sure if they do live news shoes on the web or not.

    Indictment also says that the victim was young, physically infirm and handicapped. Apparently that was listed underneath the aggravating factors, but from what I understand was not listed as one of the 3 aggravating factors.

    Apparently the first time anyone knew that there was a definite COD was at 11:15 this morning when the county ME confirmed to Dave Faherty of WSOC that there is a defiite COD known. I really think that is what they will announce at 3:00.

    Don't throw shoes at me okay -- but I wish the media would stop calling her the "stepmother". She wasn't even married to AB - she's a BIGAMIST. Instead they should say, Bigamist, Elisa Baker, has been indicted on charges of second degree murder with aggravating factors. Oh wait, Elisa Baker isn't even her legal name.

    ducking....

    Not throwing shoes at all. I totally agree. And at this point, they should call a spade a spade and refer to her as the 'alleged' murderer.

    Does it have to mean locally? We know there were members of EB's family that called CPS on her because of the abuse of Zahra so they may not mean Zahra's family.

    I totally agree with you.......since I'm not allowed to change to the descriptors I would like to use, I edited the title to Elisa Baker.

    Rest easy, no shoe from me. I get your frustration but really, as you say, exactly how to define this [unusual person] is a very slippery slope to start down. They need to put everything in soundbites. Unfortunately, the [unusual person] in question is very dificult to define in a couple of word soundbite.
