    I know there is a lot of fairly obvious guilt here, but this really jumped out to me as a fate sealer.

    Drahozal said Koehn did notice a smell and thought it was a bag of dirty diapers, which he removed.

    You don't get to say that after speaking about how keenly specific your nose is. It just doesn't work.

    I guess I was slightly off on my prediction!! But glad they were quick - like you said, Kadoober - it was a slam dunk!

    I've sat watching since court started today, 3pm here in UK. WOW, what a quick verdict, but what else could they do. Even if CH was suffering from depression he must have known and should have stepped in.

    My first ever case over, may little Stirling rest in peace with the angels.

    That he said he thought the smell was a bag of dirty diapers is so sad to me. An innocent baby died neglected and all alone. :(

    Yes, but he has to have an "official" sentencing - unless I missed a tweet that the Judge sentenced him on 11/6. ?? I thought I read that the sentencing date will be announced later.

    edited to add: I check the court site & no date yet.

    NEXT UP!

    Mother waives speedy trial in Alta Vista infant death

    Cheyanne Renae Harris, 21, waived her right to have trial within one year of arraignment. She is charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment causing death.

    A judge approved a venue change to move the trial from Chickasaw County, but a location and date haven’t been determined.

    Harris’ attorney has filed a notice she could use a diminished responsibility or intoxication defense at trial and listed an Ames forensic psychologist as a possible witness. Diminished responsibility generally means a defendant’s mental capacity at the time of the crime may have been reduced to the point where she couldn’t possess the intent to commit the offense.

    @JerseyGirl - probably if the article had a date for her next hearing, you would have posted that, eh? I can't access the articles, so that's why I'm asking. :(
    I looked on the court site and no new date for her there yet. I'll keep my eye out on it though. :)

    Gah. This poor, sweet baby. I just got caught up on everything and I am so sad at all of this. Glad dad was sentenced. I don't know how the things he even said made any sense. How could you not check on your child? Not even once?
