    The Sievers girls lost their mom and will now loose their sperm donor biological father. YES, I’m blunt when it comes to those with an agenda.
    While this is a most horrible dilemma for these young girls, including TS’s family now lovingly rearing them, the DP is the best outcome for all (MO). Mark is toxic, nothing new. The less the girls are exposed to his toxic behavior the better. This also goes for TS’s family, they don’t need that insulting presence however it may present itself. They’re far away so I assume communication will be via mail or by phone on occasion (?)—I’m not privy as to how that works on DR but my hope would be there’s no contact period. The girls will come to understand this all as they get older, then left to their individual feelings/outlook on what took place, and in the end it’s ripple effect on them and their family. That said, each could end up with differing views or not. I hope & pray for the best outcome from this damaging situation. While I do feel some sympathy towards Mark’s family loosing him, his mom and others allowed themselves to be manipulated by him for his own benefit.
    MS created this ‘most horrible dilemma’ AND did so All for himself... his wants, his needs, his image to society as he only sees himself. All that his life may entail is all about him, all for him, all the time Mark-Mark-Mark-Mark no matter what.
    Thankful for legal justice.
    Prayers for the families as they navigate life after this.

    No Regard for the Family Pets, Either

    If the girls ever have any questions in regards to their "father's" innocence, I hope they get a hold of this article.....

    UPDATE: Deputies, animal services called to Sievers home

    An "innocent" father would not have a need to HIDE (at his mama's house?). An "innocent" father would not worry about a camera in his face interfering with his feeding and sustaining the traumatized and helpless members of his family--Lucy, Nana, and Zoe--pets that were cherished by Teresa and the girls, especially the old and ailing ones in need of EXTRA care!

    MS only cares about himself. He has no conscience. He has no soul. There is no love for anything or anybody but himself. To believe otherwise would be a fatal mistake.

    May God continue to Bless and Protect all the victims of MS's crimes.

    Judge Bruce Kyle has just entered the courtroom. Here is some background on the motion for a new trial from Mark Sievers' defense attorneys.

    7m

    Defense Attorney Michael Mummert is talking about the motion for new trial. The grounds are that the verdict was contrary to the weight of the evidence, newly discovered evidence and prejudice due to juror misconduct, Mummert said.

    6m

    Mummert did attach a letter to the motion, which he said is one of the pieces of newly discovered evidence. The letter was admitted into evidence without objection from prosecutors.


    5m

    The letter with a card was discovered by Mark Sievers’ stepmother Jennie Weckelman after he was convicted of first-degree murder during a trial in December.

    4m

    Weckelman has taken the witness stand. She will answer questions about how and when she found the letter.


    3m

    More on what's in the letter here: http://bit.ly/361NEgK. It's to complicated to explain while live tweeting.

    3m

    Weckelman said she found the letters recently among Mark Sievers' belongings.

    2m

    Weckelman found the first letter within the last month, right after Mark Sievers was sentenced, she said. The other letter she found in December of 2019, Weckelman said.

    1m

    The letter found in December was found after the jury was out and deliberating, Weckelman said. The letters were kept in a large closet filled with Mark Sievers' belongings and taken from his former home in Bonita Springs.

    42s

    Weckelman said she was looking for photos or mementos that might be helpful for the mitigation phase when she found the letters. Weckelman steps down from the witness stand. The prosecution did not have any questions for her.


    1m

    Weckelman said she was looking for photos or mementos that might be helpful for the mitigation phase when she found the letters. Weckelman steps down from the witness stand. The prosecution did not have any questions for her.

    33s

    The defense has now called Dr. Mark Petrites, a friend of Teresa Sievers who found her dead inside her Bonita Springs home.

    29s

    The letters in question were written by Mark Petrites and his wife. During the trial Mark Petrites testified that he and his wife were not particularly close with Mark Sievers.

    17s

    Mummert is alleging the letters from Mark Petrites' wife show that she actually had a close relationship with Mark Sievers.

    "As a married couple, no. We were closer with Teresa," Petrites said.


    [Mummert is struggling with this.]

    That's all the questions for Mark Petrites and he is released from the witness stand. Judge asks if he wrote those letters and Petrites said he did not.

    52s

    That's all the witnesses that will be called for this hearing and Mummert is arguing in favor of his motion for a new trial.

    [I don't think this isn't going to take long. Defense have nothing.]
