    PIKE COUNTY, Ohio —

    A town woke up one morning to the horror that eight people were brutally killed. The Rhoden family suffered an unthinkable loss eight times over on one late April night in 2016. And years would go by before an arrest was made, and the massacre of an entire family still haunts Pike County, Ohio to this day. The murders of the Rhoden family still haunt small Ohio community

    Minors: You may discuss what is covered in the main stream media regarding the custody of minor children. If posting snips from articles regarding the children please redact their names. These babes are innocents. One day they will google their names or those of their parents. And plenty will come up. Let's be respectful of them and the catastrophic loss they have suffered at such tender ages. Thanks.

    @Puzzles8

    I did see Motion 6 if that's the one you are referring to. I don't believe it has been ruled on by the court yet. Thank you.

    4 perps being tried separately. Who’s the least guilty of the 4 and will they potentially walk?

    I hope we can at least find out if the defense gets this discovery information. And wouldn't it be great to see what they found, which would be listed in this discovery. I hope we can see this discovery:

    "..It is the understanding of defense counsel that by December 31, 2019, the State of Ohio will furnish defense counsel with discoverable information and material concerning the recent search of the "Fredericka Wagner property" known as "Flying W Ranch" and concerning the plea negotiations between the State of Ohio and Rita Jo Newcomb.

    Counsel for the State of Ohio indicated that the State of Ohio would provide such discoverable information and material by January 31, 2020.

    It is therefore ORDERED that the State of Ohio shall furnish the defense with all discoverable information and material concerning the recent search of the "Fredericka Wagner property" known as "Flying W Ranch" and concerning the plea negotiations between the State of Ohio and Rita Jo Newcomb on or before December 31, 2019.. "

    CC, all the defense attorneys received this Discovery in January (about RN testimony and the Nov searches at FWF). The Discovery document is posted on the Media and Timelines thread. The State has provided it.

    Living conditions in prison vary greatly between DP and LWOP inmates.

    LWOP got it easy compared to DP.

    The harsher the crime, the harsher time, IMO. These monsters planned and carried out harsh murders of 8 human beings in one night. There is no sentence compared to what the victims suffered. I could care less who agrees with me. R.I.P. Hannah Gilley, Gary Rhoden, Kenneth Rhoden, Chris Sr., Dana, Frankie, Hanna and Little Chris. You did not deserve the inhumane deaths you endured. Justice is going to be served.

    Court hearings from 11/27/18 thru 9/17/19 reference post #620 here:
    OH Pike Co., 8 in Rhoden Family Murdered Over Custody Issue, 4 Members Wagner Family Arrested #51

    10/8/19 Update: Judge Randy Deering heard arguments on approximately 40 motions. The motions mostly dealt with what could be included or excluded during trial and what language can be used. For example, there are two phases to a death penalty trial, often referred to as the guilt and mitigation phases. The defense didn't want the first phase to be called the guilt phase, calling it prejudicial. The defense also didn't want the prosecution to be able to include "past acts" allegedly by Jake Wagner to any of the murder victims. Crime scene photographs were also discussed. The defense said it didn't want too many of them shown to the jury. The prosecution argued that the defense was basically trying to keep them from showing any of them. Judge Deering is taking the motions under consideration. He didn't rule on any of the contested motions. The prosecution agreed with a couple of them. Fact Specific Motions / Pretrial hearing on 12/11.
    12/11/19 Update: Talked about Discovery Coordinator & Judge wants motions filed by 1/31/20. Also Defense wants by the end of Dec. all discovery disclosed about the last search of Flying W Farm & anything that comes of RN talking with the prosecution per her plea agreement.

    Thx @Cool Cats for your answer to my question in the last thread. You did answer my question, though I got the George #s off. Yeah, I was thinking of George III.
