They will deliberate until 9 pm tonight and will have to be here by 8:30 a.m.

Now they’ll be given a few minutes of recess, then must deliberate again.

I’ll be here until they finish up tonight!

  3. My only worry is that they will take to long to delib. and have a hung jury on thier hands or they let him off on charges that need to stick! C’mon. Its the defenses job to twist the mind into having that one tiny little thought that if theres not this or that piece of evidence that he has to be innocent. There are so many facts and stated evidence leaning so far to guilty that I hope this doesnt happen. Then everyone in this area will be running around doing these things to others in a premeditated manner thinking that they can get away with it because of the judicial system in place. Or is this too farfetched? No good. grrr.

  4. Did any one bother to ask themselves who’s blood was that on the pink rag? If it wasn’t Fred’s or Steven’s, then whose blood was it. Don’t you think that person could have killed them?

  5. Melissa, thanks again for sticking it out, I appreciate it! Anything new and exciting going on in the hallway? Have you begun to see any family members? I’m assuming since all is quiet that there’s nothing to report?!?

  6. I think there is a lot of pieces of evidence that put doubt in jury’s mind. Such as the pink rag, Fred’s side of the story, another male DNA hit on the clothing that wasn’t Steven’s or Fred’s and no weapon found. It’s a very difficult position for a jury to weigh the evidence and decide which pieces are factual and which are not. I’m glad I’m not in their shoes.

  9. Looks like it may be a long weekend. I feel for the jurors, they obviously are taking their responsibility very seriously, as they should. They hold the life of a man in their hands.
