His, GWIII’s, attorneys can see how the Prosecution handles the case if JW goes first. They then can decide what chances they have or if they should try to plea bargain.
HW was a mistype.
GW4's attorney said at the bond hearing he "wanted to see what this is all about."
This might be why we are suddenly hearing that GW4's trial isn't happening for another year or more, maybe his attorney wants to watch how the other trials implicate GW4.
The prosecution has to prove that GW4 is so enmeshed with his family that he would kill with them even though he lacks the direct motive that Jake has.
Anyway, yah, Billy's attorneys might really want to kill the speedy trial request so Jake can get tried first so they can see how the prosecution ties Billy into the murders.
If Jake's trial goes bad for him and the others are strongly implicated through the evidence at his trial, then maybe someone might plea out to LWOP. Jake being found guilty means the others have a strong chance of going to death row after him and death row scares a lot of people into plea dealing to LWOP.
It's my opinion the jury will put him on death row if he is convicted of all 8 murders, especially that 2 babies and a toddler were left bloody and alone at the scenes with young mothers nursing them in bed, one victim was just a 16 year old kid with 3 others only a few years older.
Canepa said GW4 made fun of Jake's religion alot
. Religion? Seriously?
