    Gerard Baden-Clay to stand trial for murder

    March 20, 2013

    Before a packed court room on Wednesday morning, Chief Magistrate Brendan Butler ordered Mr Baden-Clay face trial in the Supreme Court

    ‘‘I'm of the opinion the evidence is sufficient to put the defendant on trial on the offences charged,’’ Mr Butler said.

    ‘‘It will be for the jury to assess the evidence ...

    As Mr Butler formally committed Mr Baden-Clay to stand trial, he asked the 42-year-old real estate agent to stand.

    ‘‘You are charged that on or about the 19th day of April 2012 at Brisbane in the state of Queensland you murdered Allison June Baden-Clay,’’ Mr Butler said.

    ‘‘You are further charged that on or about the 19th of April 2012 at Brisbane in the state of Queensland you improperly interfered with a dead human body,’’ Mr Butler said.

    IMHO that throwaway line from Olivia was sarcastic - because it didn't turn up in court. Defence would have challenged it being admissible - i.e. - she was being sarcastic, the girls didn't corroborate it, Gerard denies it, it's hearsay.' It's a damning statement on face value and if it had been admissible, it would have been brought up in court during her time on the stand for sure.

    The constable may not have picked up on her sarcasm at the time as I'd imagine her delivery to be pretty deadpan and dry. Or he did, and the defence used his later clarification to support their case for inadmissibility.

    IMHO it wasn't said in hostility towards the police (although it would have seemed that way). It was misplaced hostility and jealousy towards Allison. Olivia had just had her morning disrupted by her doofus brother - the golden child. She's just travelled all the way from Townsville but all the attention is on pretty Allison and she's not even here! I believe we saw that nasty SIL dynamic in her testimony.

    It should have been shown to the jury. I think it was very relevant considering both OW & Nig were hell bent on making Allison an insignificant person.

    To be fair, the poor woman had been at the hospital with a migraine the previous day. Nobody is good the day after a migraine. But a nasty thing to say.

    Do you know, I think others' theories re the timing of the 000 call are spot on. It's as simple as this: he was left 'unsupervised'. They were there all night cleaning up and preparing him, and then he went and screwed it up (as usual) when Kate Rankin's call threw him off-balance - by calling 000 when 131444 didn't answer quickly enough. Whenever he's left to do something himself, he screws it up by using his own initiative if things vary from the pre-determined plan. Improvisation is not his strength.
    It was supposed to roll out this way:
    get up and text her phone as if all was normal
    (Get a call from Kate asking if Al has left yet
    Panic
    Improvise unsupervised
    Call your mate from Neighbourhood Watch and express concern, ask for advice: Al's late back from her usual walk
    Mate tells you to call 131444 and report her missing
    131444 doesn't answer after 20 seconds
    Panic
    Improvise unsupervised and call 000)
    Continue as per original plan
    Take girls to school and go to work, business as usual
    Wait for call for Kate at conference to ask where Al is
    Express surprise and concern
    Etc etc
    Start pushing alarm bells
    Panic big-time when uniforms turn up then call CIB in because you're pretty sus
    Oh dear, now things are out of your - or anyone else's control

    And do we know if they're witnesses for the prosecution or defence?

    It happens in some cases.

    With there being constant coverage of the case in media/tv there may have been an aspect of it that's jogged someone's memory & they've decided to come forward.

    In another case, new evidence was brought to court right at the very end of the trial although it didn't make any great effect at all.

    I think we may be hearing more from police officers/forensics. It should pick up where it left off yesterday when the blood in the car was mentioned.

    No idea when, but TM no doubt will be back at some time as it seems she's being driven to & from court in unmarked police car.
