    Summer's younger brother is 100% real. His testimony makes my eyes sweat.

    It’s nice to hear positive stuff about Summer as her family have kept out of it all pretty much so Summer hasn’t had much of a voice unlike Joey.

    It sounds like the prosecution wants testimony from Summer's Sister, who is currently on vacation in Greece via Skype tomorrow. If not, the pros will rest in the penalty phase.

    Trying to get Summers Sister Tracy on Skype. She is in Greece.

    If they can’t contact her they will rest in the morning. Proceed to closing. Have to do Jury instructions

    So true. You can see the depths of his sorrow in his eyes.
    His family will never be the same again.Interesting to hear how is mother is suffering still. I can't even get my head around not only losing my daughter but her husband and sweet babies. Just too much to bear. Her joy with her remaining children and grandchildren will forever be tempered. A heart ache that will never subside. MOO.

    So, if the prosecution rests tomorrow, there won't be any witnesses of how CM went around cheating people out of money?

    The PT said that they have not heard back from Tracy, which to me means they know where she is and left a message for her. I wonder why she did not know the penalty phase was today and why she did not contact the PT herself. ?? MOO

    I hope they will be able to rebut ANY of CM's witnesses. I believe the jury WILL learn of his past, IMO

    I understand Summer had been previously "painted" as being involved in Joseph's disappearance. Today's testimony by her younger brother should put that to rest FOREVER, IMO! She nurtured him like a mother and I simply can not see ANY negative impact she had on her family's lives. She looked after and took care of not only her family, but also her brother's children. I can't even imagine her memory being slaughtered by people who had 0 relations with her. Today, her memory was put right by her younger brother.

    I believe if I heard right he testified that their mother Blanche had several mental breakdowns, it affected her so badly, and she has gone to live in Hawaii to be near him.

    KA came across as a very sweet guy, Summer's younger brother by about 9 years, and he said he beats himself up that he wasn't there to do anything when he was asked how he felt about the violent death they all suffered.

    If Summer's sister Tracey is in Greece it is now past 1am there. I think that time difference (1.30 pm in San Bernardino is 11.30pm in Greece) could be the reason she wasn't contacted today. They are back tomorrow at 9.30 am which will be 7.30 pm in Greece, which is a better time to testify. Hopefully.

    The defense is not putting on any witnesses.

    Let's hope L&C come back with their camera tomorrow after today's short session. I think Daugherty said they might be ready to proceed to closing arguments, whether or not Summer's sister testifies.
