At first I thought conspiracy to commit murder was a lesser included of murder, which would make it crazy to charge them with it. They could plead guilty at the arraignment and avoid a murder charge that way. But I was wrong. So charging them with conspiracy is a smart way to keep them in jail while building a solid murder case. I wonder the same things. It makes no sense? These people are nuts. Also I wanted to echo the thanks to you for your summation. Very appreciated.
