    I'm sorry, I didn't realize that it was in a closed group. I must belong to that group too. In the second link, Jesse, was answering questions and giving her side of the story. No rumors, just her side, now that she's ready to say something. I was attempting to let others judge for themselves, what they thought of what she said.

    I'm guessing no reporter is tweeting for the trial? Or is it just jury selection?

    TIA! :)

    Andrew Terry requests jury trial in body concealment case

    Andrew Terry was scheduled for a bench trial in Montgomery Circuit Court Wednesday morning but he requested a jury trial instead.

    Roanoke City police believe both Terry and the child's mother, Jessica Day, were involved in Arieanna's disappearance.

    The child is still missing, but police previously said she is believed to be dead. Her body, however, has not been found.

    @Niner Thanks for keeping up with everything!!! I am appreciative!!!

    Good grief, seems to me like the new social media shenanigans is to try to undermine the case against him in the public eye because he thinks this could turn the outcome of a jury trial. I’m both local and in the closed group and I couldn’t keep listening because it was such utter nonsense.

    You have a point! Opting for a jury trial could have been done earlier. The father replying to ask the mother where Arieanna is, gives me the thought that the parents (both) have some explaining to do. I do question why only one day is expected to be all that's needed. If the mother, has been vocal stating that she doesn't believe that the father has or could do anything to a child, that leaves her. Yet, no charges have been made against her. Did law enforcement agencies, miss something? If the father did in fact, admit to something to that he didn't do, why? This is a strange situation from the beginning, to now.

    The man police say is the baby's father, Andrew Terry, was arrested in Montgomery County. He's charged with concealing a dead body.

    Police confirmed that Terry is a suspect and Jessica Day is a person of interest. Deputies say they're using new DNA forensics to examine evidence collected during their search. But investigators with Montgomery County later reporter to WDBJ7 that the analysis did not lead them any closer to Arieanna's body.

    In January of 2019, Andrew Terry was indicted by a Grand Jury in Montgomery County for his charges. He was scheduled to appear in court in March. That appearance was rescheduled for May 29 where he was to face a bench trial. He instead opted for a jury trial which he will face on September 25.

    Catching up after being gone myself and @Niner I just audibly gasped when I read your post!! We'll try to manage without you, but it wont be easy!
    Enjoy your vacation!!!

    What are people's thoughts on tomorrow? How long is this going to take? Why would he choose a jury trial? What are the pros and cons?? I'm local-ish so I feel like I should know this but who's allowed in the courtroom? Reporters? Cameras?
    ETA: I mean really, does this guy think a jury is going to sympathize with him??? What's his angle?

    I hate the thought that arieanna's death is going to go unpunished, but thats how i feel. I think it will only take one day because there is not a lot of evidence to show. I do not understand why he has not plead guilty at the beginning if he admitted burying her body. Unless he has since changed his mind on that or hopes he will get a lesser sentence with a jury trial than with a bench trial. This is all my own thought on what i feel.
    I also wonder if they suspect the mum is also involved why she hasnt been charged aswell. Sadly without a body it cannot be disputed without evidence that arieanna died in the car from previous injuries like andrew terry is saying.
    Im hoping im wrong on all this.
