    Agree. This was a thoughtful jury. Even on the heels of being insulted by Maline's death penalty argument. I give them so much credit for hanging in so long and staying focused. They have spoken. And,I believe them. Peace to the McStays and Arandas. Your long nightmare has at least been eased by justice being served.

    Did anyone notice how quickly Raj got the heck way from CM as soon as he could? Left him to sit back down in his defendant's chair all alone.

    He *should* be dis-barred, IMO.

    A while back McGee told the judge he was leaving out of town the end of June, through a couple weeks in July. Maybe he already left.

    With the little contact he may have with Officers, I bet he will try to con them, in ways to help his pitiful existence.
    This is just in his horrid nature, doing it most of his life.

    I am impressed with the jury's verdicts. It is so difficult to prove first degree murder and I agree with their verdict of LWOP re JM. But they knew that anyone killed other than JM was premeditated. I think the judge will go with the jury recommendation for the three DP's and rule DP.

    I can't stand the fact that we have to wait another 3 months for the judge's decision. Obviously I haven't learned patience throughout this trial.

    Channel 7 news said they are waiting for jurors to exit the building, and they will try to speak with them.

    Wow. Intriguing decision. I do understand it. DP for the children and Summer, as there’s no possible excuse. What a relief.

    I didn't see him. Recidivist remembers McGee's vacation plans so that explains it I guess.

    The YEARS, months and days this trial took has FINALLY ended today. The jurors, IMO, got it 100% right with guilty/death for CM. CM will NEVER prey upon the public EVER again. His life is over as we know it and he will ALWAYS have to look over his shoulder, even in prison, for killing the MS Family. I'm SO glad that the dirtbike rider was out and about that day, even though he discovered one of the baby's remains. Without him, we would NOT be here today.

    CM deserves what he got and much more, IMO. I hope the remainder of the victim's families can find some type of closure KNOWING the KILLER has been caught, convicted AND sentenced to DEATH. RIP JM SM GM & JMjr.
