    The “position of trust” element of the murder charge lowers the bar prosecutors must prove to obtain a mandatory life term in prison.

    Prosecutors generally must prove that someone intended to kill and deliberated for causing someone’s death. In the case of the charge against Letecia Stauch, the prosecution need only prove that she “knowingly” caused the boy’s death.

    The child abuse count his the second-highest charge against her, carrying a potential penalty of up to 48 years in prison.

    I guess this answers the question as to whether HH was there.

    MOO

    It means they don’t think she planned it in advance, but rather knowingly facilitated his death.

    Either is a bad choice. Guess it depends on her immune system vs her confidence in her self defense trainer (and LS guard) MOO

    I think the fact that the row reserved for LS supporters was empty is quite intriguing.....even Chris Watts’ had family there. His parents were there, not supporting what he did, just supporting their child; after all they lost a child in that situation too. But for no one to come for LS, really makes me think they’re cooperating with the investigation. MOO.

    Thank you! I wonder if co-council was counting her blessings to be seated away from the cough-a-thon.

    Reporters monitor the police scanners 24/7/365 and they get inside info on top of that. If any searches were going on it seems they would be all over them.

    As many people that wanted to come into the courtroom and couldn’t get in, none of them were willing to sit in that row.

    They were ‘good to go’ so they got up and went.

    The search efforts to date were all on dedicated lines, not the regular search scanners.

    Gannon is my hero! I have followed this case hoping first to find Gannon, alive and safe, then for justice, then to view the person who was responsible-yes, the wheels are turning, and the prosecution will carry thru, but I hope the public defense team, also does their job. leaving no opening for appeals, etc. I do find a bit of poetic justice in her career choice, will be very difficult to deny knowing the consequences of her actions w/ regard to her Gannon... tonite I am going to take a long hot shower w/lots of shampoo, scented soap, soft towel and celebrate... the gamover, Letecia...no rematch!!...GANNON is my hero!

    It’s very risky especially if they need a unanimous verdict in first phase just to get a conviction. Which I doubt they’ll get if DP is on table. Also I doubt they would vote unanimously for DP in the penalty phase. And even if they did, none of those cases will end in death, as they’ll all be rescinded anyway.

    It isn’t though, that’s my point. If a juror opposes the death penalty, there is still absolutely no reason to hang the jury in the guilt phase.

    That’s because all they have to do is reject the death penalty in the penalty phase. Both have to be unanimous in Colorado.

    Regardless, I can’t imagine the death penalty being put on the table here. It has no teeth anyways.

    This ain’t Texas.

    yeah, I don’t think she burned him either. But she did something where he cannot be found and The State and family seem to know a lot more at this point than public, as was evidenced in their faces at last presser. It’s that thing that will get a jury to convict her. She may have pushed him off cliff, left him tied up to die, etc. yeah, so I guess it’s not what she did after death (I misspoke) but rather what she did after she inflicted the initial blow and he was already very ill/injured.

    LS behaved herself in court today because she didn't want the judge be mad at her.
