    the jurors were unable to reach a unanimous decision.
    what a ballsup.
    the arrogance of the prosecution and the paucity of their efforts led to this.
    dude is certified sane.. nice cushy holiday..
    yy - forever a victim.
    no peace or rest for her family or her spirit.

    BC’s mother and stepfather could be seen crying, BC was hard to read, but smiled sadly at his defense team. Zhang’s family showed little emotion, from my vantage point.
    @WCIA

    The full sentencing will be at 4 p.m.
    @

    urors were not polled so it's unclear now how which way they were leaning. They spent just under 8.5 hours in deliberations between Wednesday and Thursday mm

    BREAKING: Jury is not able to make a unanimous finding-- so the court will be required to impose sentence of life. Back in session at 4 to actually impose that sentence

    Unfortunately, it's still a life, and he will find things he enjoys and looks forward to in it. Human beings are resilient that way.

    It's more than he deserves, and it's more than Yingying will ever have......

    This is what they asked the judge when they told him "they'd rather not show". They were covering their asses. My guess is most of them bought into the pity party and maybe just one or two wanted the DP.

    They knew the world was watching so moved to protect each other.

    You know what would be nice? If we got some choice words from the judge. Do it for the Zhang family judge.

    Let's hope BC has a prison life similar to Jeffrey Dahmer.

    2 yrs and 1 mo ago, a monster prowled my campus, shattered lives, and brutally ended the life of a bright, young PhD student for fun. He won't say where her body is (her family's only request) and is not even sorry. Yet he gets to live out the rest of his days. #YingyingZhang

    Just feel numb, and so incredibly sad for the family of Yingying.



    RIP, YZ.

    "How am I supposed to carry on living?" she said in testimony by video. "I really don't know how to carry on."

    She said Christensen dashed Zhang's dreams and those of her family. Yingying was killed months before she had planned to get married.

    "My daughter did not get to wear a wedding dress," Lifeng Ye said. "I really wanted to be a grandma.

    Well, short of him ordering a proper investigation and a full search, land sea and air, and a spell in Guantanemo for BC, fire the prosecution and investigate the limp investigation which uncovered sfa after Tb's tape and never even tried, anything he says is meaningless.
    He gave the defense everything they requested, allowed 49 ridiculous mitigating factors that were not mitigation by a long stretch.
    He too is responsible here
    He should have told them to go the hell back and reach a decision and take their time reaching it.

    This aint gonna do a whole pile for US tourism..

    Devastated

    I had a feeling this would happen based on the presentation of facts, lack of facts, and approaches by prosecution and defense.

    I don’t think Brendt fully remembers or totally knows where she is at this point. That is why he can’t offer her location. He can’t say with certainty where parts of her remains are. That it my personal take on the matter.

    I feel very upset on behalf of Ying Ying and her family. How they have and will continue to suffer.

    @kittythehare thank you for always dedicating yourself to this case. Thank you for providing your insights, updates, and feedback. Normally people just drop off on cases. It was so wonderful to have you here the entire time bringing in legal and personal antidotes and information. I hope to follow you in the next case you pursue and wish there was more focus on the court proceedings in other court cases as took place here on this thread. You and all of the many posters here have been wonderful. Thanks to you all.

    Very sorry that it ends this way.

    I can't disagree with any of that. I'm having trouble finding words to express myself about this, went with my gut... :-(

    Thanks for the nice things you said. I was quite driven.
    I disagree on his recollection.
    I believe he knows perfectly well where she is and will probably sell her corpse to some fruitcake he meets in prison.
    Dude is DARKNESS personified.

    Unbeknownst to the jury BC kept looking at them only to figure out which of them would make an "ideal victim".

    Ms. Zhang's family is "devastated" by the life sentence, their family attorney Steve Beckett said. "Second only to learning that your daughter was missing and ultimately killed."

    A statement from Steve Beckett, the family’s attorney and liaison: “The family is devastated, especially the mother, Lifeng Ye. This is the second worst feeling for the family since they found out that their daughter had been kidpanned and killed.”
