    I think the family is heroic in their ability to sit and listen to these sociopaths who keep making up stories and intermingling the truth. What happened to Sydney was horrific in any way that she was killed. But, to have to listen, digest, and come to terms only to be played with again with another scenario is cruel. I hope she pleads guilty (even if it means the dp is off the table) so her family can begin to heal from this awful nightmare. It would also make it so that BB and AT would never be able to be in the spotlight again,

    The jury absolutely used their common sense. This is what I love about Nebraska and Nebraskans and JMO, it especially applies to those who live in the small towns and rural areas of the state.

    From my experience, these are very fine, very strong-minded people who know the difference between right and wrong. They have compassionate hearts, but they are no one's fool. They will spot a lie a mile away. If I was charged with a crime, and I was innocent, I would hope to have a jury of people from rural Nebraska because I'd know I'd get a fair trial. On the other hand, if I was guilty, Nebraska is the last place I'd want to be.

    AT got a fair trial, IMO. But the truth is the truth and the jury didn't buy his lies. They believed the prosecution's evidence. Bless that jury and bless Sydney's loving, wonderful family.

    And most importantly, JUSTICE FOR SYDNEY!! One down and one to go.

    Oh, (d) definitely fits, and none of those mitigating circumstances apply, unless they say that BB made him do it.

    I would be very surprised if state would agree to take the death penalty off the table for BB. That's JMO, but people in Nebraska (I see you have Husker in your user name :)) , but do you remember when voters voted the death penalty back in a few years ago, after the legislature abolished it? A large margin of voters wanted it, and the Governor supports the the death penalty. From AT's trial, it appears the state has enough evidence on BB to get a guilty verdict, with the death penalty on the table. JMO

    Agreed that (d) fits as an aggravating factor.

    I could see that his lawyers would be angling for mental or emotional disturbance (c) as a mitigating factor. They had him testify about witches/fantasies. He talked about lying to investigators and acting as if he was giving them clues (palm of your hand). He cut his neck and refused to come to court. His demeanor during his testimony was downright creepy. His cruelty in talking about his role with no emotion or sense of remorse-- in fact he seemed to get pleasure out of testifying. But I don't think he is mentally or emotionally disturbed enough to have it be a mitigating factor.

    I'm not so sure. However, I think there's probably a stronger case against her than there was for AT, if that's possible.

    What if her parents supported the decision not to seek the DP?

    From following other trials, I think the state would take their feelings into consideration.

    AT admitted to being the person who wrapped the cord around her neck and choking her. I wonder if BB can argue that she didn't want her dead and, in fact, had been choked by AT just prior. I think the case of conspiracy is very strong (buying tools, grinder and pan, tarps, Tinder, seeking Sydney out/reassuring her) and the circumstances of Sydney's death will make it fairly easy to hold her to the murder charge. JMHO.

    Oh, I don’t think they will take it off the table, I’m just saying that’s the only way it will happen. What else do they have to negotiate with?

    Yup, I’m a husker lol. I’m actually from Wilber. And I do remember when they were canvassing to get the DP back on the ballot, I actually chased one of them down to sign it.

    I feel a great deal of sadness for the Loofe family. Nothing that happens will ever bring their girl back, and I can’t imagine what they have been going through. Relief that justice was served, but that relief will never outweigh their sadness.

    This is really close to home for you. Things like this just don't happen in Wilber, NE!

    I'm relieved with the verdict, but I did feel strongly the jury would see through his lies. But we never know for sure until the verdict is read.

    My heart just breaks for Sydney's family. I think this verdict likely provides them with a sense of relief, but you are right. There isn't anything that will bring Sydney back and this is something they will never recover from.
