I was in the courtroom until 2:45 when judge broke for lunch. Listened to all closing arguments. The weakest was the states initial DA, a lady with long dark hair. I think her last name is Crockery. Then Samuels, whose attempt at being a folksy Matlock came across as condescending and the jurors looked expressionless. Next up Harvey and my friend & I kept scribbling & passing notes back & forth as pretty much every other sentence was as she put it, slippery as snot. Jurors looked stone faced. I was frankly surprised that someone as famous as Harvey would crash and burn. There was a few minutes and then Clint Rucker started his closing. We could barely hear the first lady, Samuels or Harvey. Clint Ruckers voice was clearly audible and commanding. He focused on the life that Diane McIver had, one that she created despite being born in a trailer park in AL. He was impassioned. He made me cry. Having had a family member killed in a shooting, he really struck a chord with me. He kept everyone focused on who she really was, acknowledging that she was sharp tongued and careful with her money. He skillfully wove the facts of Dianes life and how Tex clearly disrespected her and did not follow through on agreements they made. How Tex was definitely not the Southern gentleman he portrayed himself to be. Seeing the photo of her cremains, carelessly tossed into a closet, and the post mortem photo of her on the operating table spoke louder than his impassioned words. He urged the jurors to stand up for Diane. It took a lot not to stand up myself. Clint Rucker was masterful. Tex deserves to spend the rest of his days in a penitentiary. And by the way, jurors heads were nodding and very animated while he spoke. Im no jury consultant but it did appear the jurors were with Clint Rucker. Todays jury questions sounded favorable for Tex so who knows?
