    Brett Seacat on trial for murdering his wife Vashti thread #1
    http://websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=210079&page=32




    Defense rests in Brett Seacat case; closing arguments set for Monday

    KINGMAN — Attorneys for Brett Seacat rested their case Friday afternoon after nearly a full day of testimony by the former law enforcement officer who is accused of killing his wife and torching their Kingman home.

    In a quick-paced and pointed cross-examination, Assistant Kansas Attorney General Amy Hanley picked apart Seacat’s testimony, focusing extensively on his actions on April 29, 2011, the day before Vashti Seacat’s death and the fire.

    Brett Seacat, a former Sedgwick County sheriff’s deputy and police instructor, rarely faltered on the stand.

    Thanks Fran!

    This case has drawn more interest than I thought it would. Also that article is very interesting.

    If BS picked up his wife while she was so bloody, with the cell phone in his hand, he would have blood on him. The boys would have blood on them. Nada.

    He destroyed hard drives, cell phones, wrote fake notes, etc...

    One thing on it's own would be considered suspect, but the totality of all the evidence, his actions, his words, won't get lost on the jury. The prosecutor hit him with all she could. It's not like he was going to come out and tell the truth. She has enough evidence from the entire case to get her guilty verdict and put this monster sway. I hope she has a fantastic closing.

    I believe it would have drawn more interest had it not been for the Arias trial at the same time and then the media coverage was very poor, or, hardly any I should say.

    I do have to admit I was very disappointed the other day that the pros didn't have more emotion. I guess I'm just spoiled by Juan Martinez in the Arias trial. You could literally feel the fire in his words when he cross examined. But, I did attend a trial, the Runnion case here in California and was struck by how calm the attorneys were during their time in front of the jury. But they get their point across just the same. (the Runnion verdict was guilty with DP). Course there's always the crime scene photos that speak for themselves!
    ...................... or the FACTS! JUST the facts!

    IMHO, circumstantial evidence is POWERFUL when it's overwhelming, which in this case, I feel it is!

    JMHO

    Court begins at 11:00 a.m. CDT with jury instructions, then early lunch, then closing arguments begin at 1:00 p.m. I'll be prompt, this judge does not fool around. lol

    I watched, by accident, the Nancy Grace Mysteries show Friday night and she covered this case. The show ended without and ending so to speak and I couldn't understand why there was no verdict rendered before it went off. So I began googling and saw that it is a current trial, which really interested me. I sat down last night and read all of the pages on the thread here on WS to get myself up to date. I think the prosecutor's strategy of not keeping him on the stand for a thorough cross was iffy--he hung himself by testifying and getting caught up in his own lies--but I wish she had grilled him for several hours on all of those lying points to making a bang of those lies for the jury. I hope to watch closing arguments today, if not, then I'll be on here trying to follow along. He's guilty.

    good morning WBers

    I have come at the tail end of this trail. At least, I want to hear the closing arguments. What is the TV station running the live feed? I appreciate it ahead of time.

    50 minutes till jury instructions (11:00 a.m. CDT).

    I've been watching it on Wild About Trial but the live stream box isn't on the page now, just the two tweet columns. Hope they restore the lvie feed before the judge begins proceedings.

    Hope both attorneys have a better grip today. They are far from stellar.

    In Twitter someone said judge is telling jury they will get case around 5:00.... and the live stream page for the local news station says:

    "If you see color bars or black - court is either in recess or the judge has asked us to turn off recording for whatever reason."
