    They reopened livestream today. Looms like they are done.
    I wonder why TM did not choose a jury trial.

    The defense didn't even call one witness. You have to wonder why they didn't try to make some kind of plea deal with the prosecution.

    McGehee says he believes #McVay went to a Big Lots in La Crosse and bought a kid's snow shovel and black leather travel bag around 11:29 am

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee says #McVay engaged in acts of deception to avoid detection. Probability of his innocence "so astronomically low."

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee says #McVay wanted to impress Tammy Hegi, the woman who flew him out to Vegas on Dec. 29, 2013.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee says #McVay lied to Hegi about owning his own business. In fact, he was unemployed, got financial assistance from parents.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee pointed to #McVay's statement to police that Olson originally planned to drive him to Minn. Says she later let him take her car.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee also says that if Olson was supposed to take #McVay to Minnesota, there's no evidence of how he was going to get home to RI

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee now points to #McVay's comments to police that he believed Olson had smoked something on Dec. 28/29.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee says #McVay had not job, no insurance. "Tim has been a disappointment to the McVay family."

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee: He had to figure out another way to get there. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee says that's why #McVay started to contact Olson to try and convince her to get her car so that he could drive to Minnesota.

    McGehee says #McVay first tried to pump $55 at the Git-n-Go gas station in Rock Island early Dec. 29. PIN didn't work. He didn't text O.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    #McVay went to two gas stations and a credit union ATM a few blocks from his house to use Olson's debit card.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee says if the PIN number on the card wasn't working, #McVay could have picked up Olson from his house.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee says he believes Olson was already dead when #McVay tried to use the debit card.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    A friend of Olson told police that #McVay had told her that he had a surprise for her and asked her to come to his house on Dec. 28, 2013.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    The friend testified earlier that Olson thought the surprise was that #McVay would repay money he owed her.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    #McVay told police that the "surprise" was that he used some paint in his house that Olson had recommended.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee pts to texts earlier in December between Olson and #McVay about paint. McVay tells her the paint looks "freakin awesome."

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14

    McGehee says #McVay most likely suffocated Olson when she wouldn't drive him to Minnesota, then put her in the trunk of her car.

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    McGehee finishes his closing argument. Court taking a 10 minute break before the defense begins. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14

    Court is back in session. Defense attorney Dan Dalton starts his closing. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton begins his closing with a definition of first-degree murder. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton says there is no evidence that "any acts" were committed in IL. No evidence that O was even killed in IL. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton says there is no evidence that #McVay killed Olson. Says it's "pure speculation" by prosecutors

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton says the medical examiner who performed the autopsy performed no biochemical testing to determine O's cause of dead. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton says the ME also didn't review Olson's medical records. Says that's "astounding." #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Reminder: the ME determined Olson's death was a homicide by unspecified means. #mcvay

    Dalton says the ME suggested "burking" as a cause of death, but did not know how burking is done. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton says the ME suggested that a "215 lb. man with his bare hands killed a 194 lb woman" and did so without leaving any marks. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton now pts to ME's testimony regarding lividity, which is used to determine position of a body at death. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton says lividity become fixed within 8-12 hours #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Dalton says if a body is in a different position for up to 8 hrs prior to being dumped, there would be signs of fixed lividity #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
    Correction: mixed lividity. #mcvay

    Dalton says there was no signs of mixed lividity in Olson. Says that makes it unlikely that O was killed in RI, transported to Minn. #mcvay

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14

    Tara Becker ‏@TaraBecker_QCT · Jul 14
