What happened with HLN coverage??
He could if he dared! Fat chance!
his mockumentary will be like The Staircase and Michael Peterson
Yes, he can speak up and try to save his sorry arse now.
Cathy Russon tweets they will cover press conference if there is one.

Members of the Merritt family remain in court. There are tears, Sara Taylor Jarvis, Merritt’s daughter who testified for the defense during the trial, is wiping her eyes. Defense attorneys are telling them what's next. #mcstay #chasemerritt
figures the one time the court is on time, I'm not
just missed the reading of the verdict by a minute
I don't feel happy though, I'm just sad
Used wrong word, should have use the word, emotional, instead of shock. I'm sure the prosecution team is extremely emotional at this point at finally getting justice for the brutal murders of this family. It can be totally overwhelming.
well he could fake cry and say he didn't do it
Will there be any video to watch the verdict reading
I think he might speak now because they dont really do a cross during this phase.
And he is a con man, so he will be sure he can convince them to have mercy, and give him a light sentence.

Charles Merritt Found Guilty in the Murders of the McStay Family https://lawandcrime.com/live-trials/live-trials-current/charles-merritt/mcstay-murder-trial-verdict/ … via @lawcrimenews
I'm relieved for Dan Kavanaugh too. The defense tried to hang a quadruple murder on him and he'll always be suspect to some people because of it. I'm so glad to see justice for the McStays!
Well that's the fastest verdict update I've ever seen on websleuths. Wow.
I still don't know if Chase is guilty or not. But I do feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
I imagine that is how the McStay family feels as well.
Merritt's family however, is now entering a living hell.
Law and Crime said they will have it archived on their page soon.
And someone in their chat said he recorded it and was putting it on youtube now.
I've never heard it mentioned before so was unsure.
Merritt has been putting his family through hell for years now.
Man Found Guilty of Murder in Death of McStay Family, 6 Years After Bodies Were Found in Victorville
No cross examination? Thanks—I hadn’t realized that—seems a little disturbing. Well, I don’t really care too much what the sentence is, but I’m very curious as to what will be introduced into evidence that we hadn’t heard about before.
I have sympathy for Merritts younger children but not his ex girlfriend who was lying though her teeeh in the stand. She is equally as vile as she had kids so how could she support him is beyond me.
I suppose those who think Chase is not guilty can hope that The Innocence Project takes his case, but I seriously doubt that will happen.
Personally, I hope for LWOP so there can’t be years of appeals paid for by CA, if that’s how it works there.
