    Remember the state only has to prove one of these factors applies to Mark Sievers beyond a reasonable doubt for him to be sentenced to death.

    The defense will also get to present mitigating factors that could convince jurors to change their mind and not sentence Mark Sievers to death.

    I thought we would be hearing from family members for this part of the trial. It sounds like it will just be rehashing evidence?

    I just posted this same thing (in wrong thread) - at least two in gallery match defendant's purple tie. Family?

    The murderer's smug face has returned.

    Ross said the state will not recall witnesses or re-present much evidence from the guilt phase of the trial. Jurors more than likely remember much of this information because the guilt phase wrapped up less than a week ago.

    Perhaps just to her friends and family, that he is mourning her? I dunno. Seems a little late to pull that out.

    Mark’s demeanor is strikingly different since his conviction. No more inappropriate smirks or giggles. He appears to still trying to process the permanency of the verdict. Occasionally still taking VERY deep breaths.

    Especially striking if you saw Jimmy Rodgers stoic reaction when his verdict was read aloud.

    Those two are both nodding and agreeing with state. Who are they?

    Ross is walking through some of the evidence and testimony from the guilt phase. "The state relies on the extensive evidence," Ross said.

    Dr. Teresa Sievers’ brother, mom, and sister are back in the courtroom. We expect them to make victim impact statements to the jury. I don’t see Mark Sievers step mom. She was here every day of the trial, even jury selection.

    We will start this morning with testimony from Dr. Teresa Sievers family after closings. This will be the first time in a long time we'll hear from Dr. Sievers mother.

    "This was a plan hatched in Bonita Springs, Florida, incubated in Missouri," Ross said. This morning jurors will hear from Teresa Sievers' family, Ross said.

    The state will call Teresa Sievers' mother to the stand to talk about the uniqueness of her daughter and what the community lost when she was killed. Jurors will also watch a short video of Teresa Sievers, Ross said.

    DP lawyer is the ONLY witness the murderer has paid respectful attention to while they were speaking.

    For the defense, Gregory Messore is beginning closings. Messore said he hoped today wouldn't come. "My role in this case is today, to seek life over death."

    Messore said the defense team respectfully disagrees with the verdict in the case. Mark Sievers is the only person in this case that could possibly be sentenced to death for his role in the crime, Messore said.

    Messore said each juror has the power to give life in this trial. If even one of the 12 does not agree Mark Sievers should face death, he will not face the death penalty.

    The state just confirmed Dr. Teresa Sievers' mom will take the stand. Jurors will also see a video of the Bonita Springs mother of two who was murdered in 2015. Until now, the jury has only seen pictures (mainly crime scene) of Teresa Sievers

    In defense's penalty phase opening statement, attorney notes he didn't want to get to this point, but said he respects the jury's guilty verdict. At least one juror nodded her head when he said this

    Messore said several members of Mark Sievers' will testify on his behalf. The defense will focus on the life of Mark Sievers and not talk much about Teresa Sievers, Messore said.

    Defense explaining that they won't be focused on Dr. Teresa Sievers life with the defendant, saying they believe it's inappropriate based on the jury's verdict.

    GM has very nice voice. Calm, restive, respectful to jury.
    I wonder if purple has to do with Death Penalty issue in general, not necessarily in support of the murderer? *off to Google* - the only reference I find to purple the the dp is the prisoner turning purple while dying. Oops.
