    This isn't surprising. I'm very glad for Tara's loved ones to finally see justice served.

    Thank goodness this trial wasn't held in CA for it would have taken many months to complete.

    This was pretty much a no brainer case, imo, so that is why the verdict of guilty came back quickly.

    Imo

    Bo Dukes #TaraGrinstead trial - it seems there was at least some immunity deal

    Bo Dukes/Tara Grinstead trial | DA asked if deal was made for reduced charges, immunity

    Mar 20, 2019

    "Bo Dukes, the man accused of burning and hiding beauty queen Tara Grinstead's body in 2005, is on trial. Tifton DA Paul Bowden was asked if he or DA Brad Rigby made any deals to lessen charges or give Dukes immunity for showing investigators the pecan orchard"
