    This is the beginning of justice for Shaniya. May it be swift and harsh.

    We will open the thread, Monday morning, April 8th, 2013 for the start of proceedings in the State of NC v. Mario McNeill.

    We will be able to follow Nicole Carr at abc's twitter: @NewsWithNicole


    Nicole Carr is a local reporter and she has let me know that there will be no live streaming of the trial per the court's order but that she will be tweeting. Her anticipated schedule is the 1st and last day of jury selection and then daily throughout the proceedings.

    Nicole's station is "abc EyeWitness News 11" so I would anticipate any locals will be able to watch updates on the news in the evenings and I'm sure they will post something online for the rest of us. At least I hope so.

    So.... this will be a good source for following along.

    Yes, Little Miss Wednesday, we do need you here with us on this one. We will each need the others to lean on, b*tch & rant & rave to, to laff & cry with, and to triumph with. (Ack! I just murdered the English language 4 times with those dayammed prepositions hangin' off those phrases....)

    And something that you do for me, each time you post, unbeknownst to you, is your avatar of Wednesday Friday Addams. Seeing her with her recently guillotined-by-her-brother doll makes me grin each time I see her. So thanks for Wednesday.

    I can handle a lot. But this case is different for me.
    I pretty much lived this case 24/7 for months/years and Shaniya has a huge piece of my heart.

    I will follow all that is available but sitting here watching a live trial on this case daily would be torture.

    I am confident that the two monsters will be convicted.

    Fayetteville man faces rape, murder trial in girl's 2009 death
    Forty-one months after a 5-year-old Fayetteville girl's battered body was found in a kudzu patch, the capital murder case of the man accused of raping and killing her starts Monday.
    Jury selection in the case is expected to last at least a week, as prosecutors and defense attorneys question prospective jurors at length about their views on capital punishment.

    Snipped by me.

    I wanted to address this part earlier and I forgot.

    There is evidence that Shaniya may have been raped at the mothers/aunts home the night before.
    The minor brother's statement, the feces covered porch railings, the blanket...

    So, my opinion on this (and its just an opinion) is that Shaniya's little body was badly damaged prior to that morning (it pains me to type that) and AD knew the gig was up.

    She would eventually have to return Shaniya to her aunt/Father and knew Shaniya would tell or that the injuries would be obvious.

    IMO she let MAM take her early that morning knowing full well Shaniya would never be back.

    She hoped her lame kidnapping story would hold up and she would get away with selling her daughter.

    Good Morning, twall! Yes, you are reading AD's court date correctly! [​IMG]

    Her dates have not changed for a while. Weeks ago, or more, both of them had the same court date, as they still do -- I think because the DA's office was figuring out which case they wanted to try first. And they simply have not changed hers -- the Senior Resident Sup. Ct. Judge holds planning meetings, usually once a quarter, with the DA & Defense teams for upcoming cases and they schedule trials according to their own schedules. AD's date may simply be as-is just because they have not had a chance to put a real date on it. I don't really know...

    To get (limited) info on NC county court dates, here is a link. It is fairly self-explanatory from there. Some counties post their schedules earlier and for longer periods of time than others, so the amount of info per county varies.

    Did any of these news outlets provide more coverage than the others in 2009? Noticed that if a lot of web hits are made to a site - they often provide more coverage. That is often the case in Florida - so just wondering where to put attention - when I have very limited time. Thanks.

    Ugh, that makes a lot of sense, Kimberlyd -- so hard to say that! But I do remember the horrible details from her brother about the blanket, etc., and MAM giving Shaniya something to make her sleepy, etc., etc.

    It makes a lot of sense
    -- and that certainly would bring AD much, much closer to, essentially, a conspiracy with MAM for him to "take care of the problem," and the disappearance sounds pretty logical. But stupid, IMO, for her to think that LE would take her word for it, look around some, and eventually put it in a cold case file.

    I'm not sure Karen in New York, maybe some of our locals can let us know.

    Thank you!

    In the youtube linked above - the judge talks to MM. I don't hear real well and don't have my headphones on but the Judge says they were talking about if MM would testify and than the judge asked if MM agreed to something - but I can't figure it out?

    Judge in McNeill trial for Shaniya Davis murder has prohibited tweets from the courtroom. Reporters will tweet during breaks #ShaniyaDavis

    Says judge is prohibiting tweets from the courtroom. This just makes me angry :mad:
