    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
