    First time poster too :greetings:

    Because Allison's phone was never found they can't tell when it was charged. That would have been interesting to know.

    These posts pretty much summarise the way I'm thinking at the minute ...

    The prosecution case is circumstantial and it would be so ironic if GBC insisted on appearing in his own defence, only to drop himself right in the mire - and very publicly.

    Though I haven't posted in yonks I'm suddenly aware that this case could be done and dusted before we know it, and I thank all the sleuthers and mods who've contributed so much over the last 2+ years.

    Hope it all goes well. If it's like my hospital experiences you won't get in to surgery until after court's out for the day, by which time you're seriously dehydrated and they can't find a vein. :sigh:

    <respectfully snipped>

    Thank you Alioop. It's helpful to learn that the Prosecution has selected only 'relevant evidence' to prove the case for murder for the Jury, so they are not overwhelmed with too much detail - and then presented calmly and carefully. This makes sense IMO.

    All the best and I wish you a speedy recovery. Maybe when you are coming to you'll mumble 'did he take the stand???'

    Good luck with your op and recovery :)

    I may be wrong (it happens frequently!) but I don't believe GBC will be giving evidence. In cases with prolonged, professional and thorough investigations the accused has had ample opportunity to put forward their version of events, there is usually very little to add and what needs to be clarified is usually done so during the cross examination of Crown witnesses.

    If the defence does in fact call witnesses I'd expect at least 1 of them to be a mental health professional, in fact if I was a member of GBC's team they would be the only witness I would call. The prosecution appears to have painted a picture where Allison was in a good place mentally and from the defence point of view it is extremely important that the jury are made aware that frequently, perhaps even more often than not, people take their own lives when all appeared well outwardly. Please note that I'm in no way suggesting that Allison did in fact take her own life, only that if defence witnesses are called this may well be an avenue that they will pursue.
