GBC has pleaded not guilty. Court had heard #badenclay speak for the first time in court: "Not guilty your honour."
Hello all, I am so pleased to see this day arrive as well. Justice will prevail!
Re: the house colour, it has since been painted yellow - a few months ago now. Not sure if anyone is living there tho' although there are occasionally cars parked outside. Just FYI.

Allison Baden-Clay's parents have released a statement. "We hope you can imagine the ongoing impact of these events on our granddaughters."
House painted Sun Flower colour!
“As the trial is imminent, we understand public interest in the case will again escalate and we recognise the media has a role in responding to this.
“However, out of respect for our daughter, her children and the legal process we will not be doing any interviews in the lead up to or during the trial. We ask that you respect our privacy and our decision not to grant interviews and refrain from photographing or filming the children.
“We hope you can imagine the ongoing impact of these events on our granddaughters — it has been devastating and will be long lasting.

Just five jurors empanelled so far. Crown and defence selecting panel carefully. #badenclay
Apologies for the silly question -
Are potential jurors paraded in front of the courtroom where GBC is or is this done in a closed environment ?
