    I had to quote this wonderful post as you hit the nail on the head with the 42k he owed Joey as well. That alone is enough to drive some people to murder. He had zero way of paying it back once Joey sacked him.

    Chase was making a crazy amount of money, he chose to gamble it away and Joey didn't.

    IMO I think Chase panicked because it was the beginning of the month and his live in girlfriend/baby mama was probably bugging him for the rent money. Which he didn't have and Joey was tired of his leaching and wouldn't bail him out again. Therefore he forged his first check. He thought he was entitled. Disgusting IMO

    Thanks for the insights, everyone. No, I haven't seen the trial. I just discovered this case. What a sick rapist and murderer. There are no words.

    Maybe deep down Maline knows CM's guilt and is sabotaging his final statement on purpose?

    Retrying the case right now is going over like a lead balloon, IMO.

    I am confused to why he is going over the case again?

    He has been found guilty so why is he going over stuff that says he didn’t do this?


    I assumed this would just be about his character not
    about saying that there is zero proof and not a single piece of evidence.

    His guilt seems so obvious. His lawyers must feel sick.

    Retrying the case, insulting the jury? Not a good strategy imho.

    I just rejoined Websleuths. I was here throughout the Arias trials, but life took me away, and when I tried to reactivate my account they couldn't find me so I created a new identity. Glad to be back!

    We will never know the conversations that Joey and Summer had about CM, imo she had been warning joey for a while about him and likely suspected he was up to no good for a while, if she was a good judge of character she could have had just a ‘feeling’ from the first time she met him which would explain CM’s absolute hatred of Summer. Sadly we will never know exactly what Joey and Summer had discussed and not shared with anyone because CM murdered them all to ensure no one could talk. I can’t fathom another reason as to why he would kill the two little boys other than to ensure he left no witnesses. Joey had the money and he just downright hated Summer because she knew there was ‘something’ about him.
    It’s ironic that he thought his actions would help keep his secrets yet now he has been exposed to the world as a thieving, frauding, baby murdering monster who killed his own ‘best friend’. Death row or LWOP no ones ever going to want to be his friend, look how his last one ended up.

    Yes - Leomoon said he'd done it as soon as she got his birthdate, & looked at his astrology chart. This was at the very beginning .

    So ...telling the jury they were duped in to thinking there was evidence where none existed is the defense strategy? Yee. Ikes.

    He committed

    Murder for financial gain
    Murder in the commission of a felony- rape, kidnap, firearm
    Murder of children under 5
    Murder of multiple people
    Murder particularly cruel and heinous

    If there ever was a case that deserved the death penalty. He ticks every box.

    If I was a juror on this case, and this defense attorney is telling me I got it wrong, I'd be very irritated.
