    Does anyone know the year of his Chevy Malibu? I have looked and all I see is Black Chevy Malibu and never a year mentioned.

    Seems like I remember someone saying it was a 2012.

    My interpretation to the Prosecutor stating "...whenever you put her in the corn, she was bleeding" was "there was no more bleeding."

    CBR had previously stated he didn't know how Mollie was killed but knew she was dead.

    MOO

    So many gaping wholes of information. I couldn't watch the trial, so maybe I'm just missing parts, but:

    1) Who was the girl he was supposed to go out on a date with and was she ever interviewed to confirm that date?

    2) Where are the phone records showing DJ's phone was inactive.

    3) Why not put UF on the stand? What's his alibi?

    I thought at one point he said he didn't look when asked about the blood. (When the body was still in the trunk) I'll have to listen to it again. He apparently told investigators he saw blood on her neck.

    But yes, I think he said he didn't go straight home and had to look for a map because that's when he went somewhere to get rid of his shirt, the murder weapon, or other evidence. Imo

    I am a little surprised the prosecution didn't ask him who he was supposed to go on a date with.

    Actually I would disagree. He is a farm worker. I'm sure he is plenty strong. He could have easily carried her into the field. I suspect he incapacitated her on the road (punch or maybe one stab) and put her in the trunk. Then in the corn field killed her (I agree on that). Did he carry her into the field or force her to walk? Impossible to say. But I don't think Mollie would have walked into that field voluntarily. He had a knife, she HAD to know what was coming. If he had a gun, maybe. But he had a knife, she could have run. I suspect he carried her and finished her off in the field. I agree that if he stabbed her viciously on the road, there would have been a lot more blood in the trunk. I also suspect he killed her before he SA her.

    I wonder if CBR's statement is on video? Jennifer Frese has repeatedly stated throughout the trial "it was recorded" but then disclaims "you won't see it because it's in Spanish." IMO, it's like she teases the jurors with this statement for her own credibility but I find it annoying.

    I suppose the reason the jurors are not being shown the video is because the parties couldn't agree to a transcript (interpretation variances cited earlier by Officer Romero). MOO

    The client obviously wanted to take the stand and changed his story.

    I think if I was the prosecution, I would have asked for him to go through the testimony again. I would have asked him to tell me exactly what happens just to make sure we are clear. Then waited for him to misspeak. I would ask for clarification for exactly when the phone and keys were taken from him. What exactly where the men wearing. Long pants and a sweater.. did they have gloves, what exactly did the mask look like. I mean hell if there are 2 masked crazy murders on the loose shouldn't we all be alarmed? I don't think he would repeat that story exactly like he did when he was being lead by his attorney.

    Yep. He claims he himself was kidnapped by masked men who forced him to participate in the kidnapping and to drive them to the corn field. It was just absurd.

    There's a good summary of his story upthread posted by Pommy Mommy. He claims he was kidnapped by two masked men and they forced him to drive, then killed Molly and put her in the trunk! Then he put her body in the corn and covered it with stalks to keep it from the sun.

    Says he was afraid to talk because they threatened to kill his family, his daughter and her mother.
