    High profile attorneys love these cases. They do it for the publicity. They often do it pro bono or for minimal fees. He may have a pd at his arraignment, but after that he’ll have a legal team from a big firm working on every aspect of his case from evidence, to confession, to immigration status. You’ll think this guy is Beaver Cleaver by the time it goes to trial.

    He tracked her and had a plan!!!!! I think we will find out later that his car has been around her before.

    I’m betting on that too, that he will have a high profile legal team after today

    My parents lived and worked in Sweden for 30 and 40 years, but their understanding and ability to express themselves in Swedish was rudimentary at best. If they had to get in contact with health care or other authorities they needed a translator (me from age seven).
    If he haven't had much contact with English-speaking people then his knowledge of the language might not be enough when speaking with LE. There is a waste difference being able to understand and speak English in everyday life and when in a situation such as this. I've been studying English for 50 years and I have a Cambridge C2 Proficiency exam, but if I were in an English-speaking country and were accused of a crime, I would want a translator too!

    IMO this hearing is no place for a child.

    Blows my mind that a young father could kill someone else’s daughter. That poor little girl.

    I don't believe there is video of the suspect loading Mollie into the trunk of his car, but Mollie running, the circling of the car, bad camera angles, and difficulty to identify what they were looking at is what I refer to as the abduction information on CCTV which did lead to an arrest.

    Agreed, but there won't be that kind of trial, right? I mean if he stands up now and says not guilty I am going to be floored. If he says guilty then they'll just have sentencing...right?

    This hearing is no place for that little girl. Like she needs any more trauma.

    He has an attorney and a privately retained interpreter and wants a motion for a private hearing and exclusion of expanded media coverage. I'm guessing they want to lock out the press

    Not to discount it, but I don't think I would call this super close. She was targeted and assaulted (physically for sure, maybe more) by someone who at least knew of her (99.9 percent sure). He targets her. There was nothing accidental in it.
