    Ok, I am so bummed that I couldn't get the feed.... I have it now, anyone outside of US needed a VPN... and they didn't say anything until the verdict was being read :( I have it now, I'm hoping I will be able to rewind.

    The jail will probably put him on suicide watch, which means he will spend the night in a safety cell .

    Sorry, I meant Prosecution. I guess they do need to get over the shock of a guilty verdict.

    Smart Jury it didn’t take a rocket scientist to put the pieces together to know he did it.

    He’ll get life no more death penalty in CA. <modsnip>

    Well I’ll be watching it now (after the guilty verdict).

    No way would I be able to watch it otherwise.

    Discussing the Wallace issue and whether that needs to be investigated in regards to the integrity of the verdict.

    The judge is saying it was only the alternates.

    PT asking judge to poll jurors whether contacted by Wallace. Judge explaining that alternates were contacted after jurors left. So no indication they were contacted.

    Richard K. De Atley‏Verified account @RKDeAtley 3m3 minutes ago
    After hearing evidence in penalty phase, jurors will deliberate and decide whether to recommend the death penalty or life in prison without parole. McStay family in court, Susan Blake, Joseph McStay's mother, was in tears at word of first conviction. #mcstay #chasemerritt

    Now prosecutor Britt Imes brings up the issue of possible jury tampering from last week, when two alternates were approached by a defense team member after deliberations started. #mcstay #chasemerritt

    It is starting to sink in. Probably feeling sorry for himself, not the McStays.

    It’s not the shock of a guilty verdict, as much as it is a huge weight lifted off their shoulders.

    Their biggest fear would have been this vile mass murderer, being a free man.

    They were acutely aware of the stakes here.

    Chase Meritt will never pray on another innocent victim, something he did his entire life.

    They will poll jurors on tampering it sounds like, just to be thorough.
