    Info from Poughkeepsie Journal. More info in Link below.

    The prosecution's case
    In August 2017, Addimando sent a text to someone that read: "I haven't found out a way to kill him without being caught, so I'm still here," said Krauss, reading it aloud for the jury.
    Meanwhile, judging by other texts sent before his death, it was Addimando who "wore the pants" in the relationship, Krauss added. She called him stupid, said he had a mental disorder and referred to him as a "man child."

    In his responses, Grover does not lose his temper, Krauss said. He said, "'maybe you'll be happier if I go, if I make you so unhappy.'"

    The defense's case
    Ingrassia laid out a history of violent sexual acts and other physical abuse that span years in their relationship.

    Among the acts of "severe and extreme sexual violence" — when Addimando was pregnant with their second child, Grover burned her on various parts of her body with a heated metal kitchen utensil, InGrassia said.

    "You will see photographic evidence of the injuries she sustained at (Grover's) hands," he added.

    Yes, there was at least one witness. Nina Schutzman wrote about it on twitter and Facebook. Below is cut from her post on Facebook, I hope it’s okay to do this since she is writing as a reporter and not gossiping on Facebook.

    Day one of Nicole Addimando’s murder trial: Things I would have Tweeted:

    • The 12 jurors are eight women and four men; the six alternates are two women and four men. That's really all I know since I couldn’t make it for jury selection.

    • Prosecutor Chana Krauss described Addimando talking to police after shooting Christopher Grover, says at one point that Addimando sounded like she was “repeating a recipe or shopping list” and imitates her by leaning casually.

    • Krauss tells the jury that they may feel sympathetic toward Addimando at times, but they can’t let that get in the way of judging facts.

    • There was a laptop “submerged” in a bathtub that Addimando told police had evidence of sexual abuse, but nothing was found on it, Krauss said.

    • Defense lawyer John Ingrassia says the relationship between Addimando and Grover got really bad after their son was born. Witnesses will recount times they saw bruising on her face, arms, under her eyes.

    • When CPS came to their apartment on Sept. 27, 2017, Addimando told them everything was OK and that there were no weapons in the house, Ingrassia says, but both of those things were lies.

    • Grover’s gun was legally registered and stored safely away from the children, Krauss says.

    • There is already a witness on the stand, this is going quickly. Police expert in mobile device forensics, who extracted a bunch of data from Addimando’s and Grover’s phones. Some things were deleted.

    As Nicole Addimando’s murder trial begins, lawyers share details of text messages, night-of-shooting Google searches and allegations of “physical abuse and sexual torture.”

    Niner, Nina tells the experts name now:

    So far today, there has been testimony from Marisa Hart, who runs Mr. Todd's gymnastics with her husband (where Christopher Grover worked), and Putnam County Sheriff's Office Investigator Matthew Tunney, an expert in mobile device forensics.

    Hart is set to take the stand again when trial resumes in a few.

    I'll have a quick midday update coming soon, then a longer article tonight.

    Addimando murder trial: Witnesses talk CPS probe, web searches

    March 19, 2019

    "... (Officer Richard) Sisilli was one of three witness to testify Tuesday. He is expected to take the stand again when court resumes on Wednesday.

    Jurors watched footage of Sisilli's interaction with Addimando, but the audio was inaudible in many instances.

    Gymnastics job in common

    Addimando and Grover used to have an employer in common. Both worked at Mr. Todd’s Gymnastics in Poughkeepsie — Addimando left for another job in 2011 and Grover stayed on as head coach.

    On Sept. 27, 2017, it wasn’t clear if Grover would make it to work on time.

    He had told his boss he had a meeting with CPS that morning, testified Marisa Hart, who owns Mr. Todd’s along with her husband....

    Attorneys spent Tuesday morning questioning Putnam County Sheriff's Office Investigator Matthew Tunney, an expert in mobile device forensics...."

    Jurors saw a video interview where Nicole Addimando lays out the series of events leading up to her shooting her boyfriend.


    Addimando says boyfriend said: 'You won't do it' before she shot him

    March 20, 2019

    "He told her she wouldn't do it, that she didn't "have it in" her to shoot him, Nicole Addimando recounted to police in a video interview....

    Video footage of Addimando's interview with police was shown to the jury Wednesday, during testimony from Town of Poughkeepsie Detective Darrell Honkala....

    The trial is set to resume Thursday morning."

    The medical examiner testified today and Nina will write more about it so tomorrow morning (it’s 10.30 pm here in Sweden) I’ll post info on that if no one else has done it before. Hopefully we’ll know more about if he was sleeping when shot or if he was standing up. Good night, see you here again tomorrow.
