    Johnson: Why would Bluhm delete things from his cell? "My guess is he deleted a photo of Mrs. Bletsch on the side of the road."

    Johnson: believes Bletsch maybe slowed down jogging when she recognized someone she knew (Bluhm from kids' soccer), and Bluhm shot her

    Johnson: Bluhm is well-trained in shooting and guns, trained others in firearms

    Thanks so much UndiscoveredTruth. Do you think there is enough reasonable doubt about Bluhm’s involvement preventing a unanimous verdict against Willis?

    Defense says Bluhm planted the evidence in Willis’ van @WOODTV #WillisonTrial – at Kobza Hall Of Justice

    Defense: “Once they got the guy how much more investigation do you think they’re (police) are gonna do? None.” @WOODTV #WillisonTrial

    #JeffreyWillis - Just like in their opening statements, in closings the defense says Kevin Bluhm killed #RebekahBletsch.

    Hi :wave: Yes, unfortunately I (personally) do think there is enough reasonable doubt, especially when reading what you've quoted. Mind you, the closing statements aren't evidence but still, when you hear it like the jurors do, they are left with those thoughts.

    Johnson says timeline on Bluhm is false. Says Bluhm had time to stalk and kill Bletsch @WOODTV #WillisonTrial – at Kobza Hall Of Justice

    Johnson: Willis has "creepiness" going on and "disgusting porn," no alibi, "they hit the mother load with my client" he says police believe

    Johnson: Why would you keep the murder weapon in your car?? Mr. Bluhm didn't. Says Willis didn't know what happened, held onto gun

    Willis kept the gun because he didn’t know it was used in a crime, defense says @WOODTV #WillisonTrial

    [video=twitter;926160909495566336]https://twitter.com/ReporterBartonD/status/926160909495566336[/video]

    The greatest leap of all is that Willis chose the object of Bluhm’s obsession to murder, says defense. @WOODTV #WillisonTrial

    [video=twitter;926160903317409794]https://twitter.com/DanaChicklas/status/926160903317409794[/video]

    Johnson: "Perhaps the biggest leap of all" is saying Willis killed Bletsch who was his cousin Bluhm's "obsession"

    Johnson: details of Jessica Heeringa case & picture of Bletsch in ambulance "doesn't tell you who shot Mrs. Bletsch" it's "emotional weight"

    Johnson said prosecutor has been appealing to emotion to convict Willis. The porn, Heeringa, the teen, all irrelevant @WOODTV #WillisonTrial – at Kobza Hall Of Justice

    Hilson bristles at defense “attack on my character.” Says he would never prosecute an innocent man. #WillisonTrial – at Muskegon County Courthouse

    [video=twitter;926162671313006592]https://twitter.com/DanaChicklas/status/926162671313006592[/video]

    Hilson: "in my career I have never ever prosecuted or convicted an innocent person"

    [video=twitter;926163147072917504]https://twitter.com/DanaChicklas/status/926163147072917504[/video]

    Hilson: "We have a responsibility to present relevant evidence," speaking to Heeringa and MJN evidence, it was relevant.

    “I’ve never seen pure evil, but the defendant is pure evil,” Hilson says @WOODTV #WillisonTrial – at Kobza Hall Of Justice

    [video=twitter;926163477944766464]https://twitter.com/DanaChicklas/status/926163477944766464[/video]

    Hilson: No evidence that Kevin Bluhm killed Rebekah Bletsch; their kids played soccer, him looking at her FB profile is not "obsessed"

    [video=twitter;926164018695458816]https://twitter.com/DanaChicklas/status/926164018695458816[/video]

    Hilson: "I've never seen pure evil, this is pure evil," Willis has no problem lying, it doesn't phase him. Willis killed Rebekah Bletsch.

    Surely Hilson's seen pure evil before....during his career I mean! He's saying Willis has no problem lying, but you know, pretty sure he's seen pure evil before Willis.. :doh: How many cases has he been involved in during his career? :thinking:

    I think Circuit Judge William Marietti gave some of the best oral jury instructions I have heard. He was clear about weighing the truthfulness and testimony of the witnesses, the role of the opening and closing statements, how the jury is to begin -- from the perspective of innocence and then careful weighing of evidence. Impressive.
