It was a win-win yesterday. Travis, family and friends got their 1st degree murder verdict. Juan Martinez and Esteban Flores proved their case!
Juan only need put Dr. Horn on the stand.
In one of her infamous TV interviews, Jodi claimed she would rather a death sentence than life in prison. She repeated that last evening on Fox10.
So, if Jodi really feels that way, she will direct her defense not to put on a mitigation case. Or is she such a maniac she will again take the stand and plead for mercy?
Will be interesting!
No court today. Reconvene May 15th at 10am.
Beth Karas suggested Jodi is getting evaluated…defense doing an end-run.
Holy crap, she’s still running the show!
Continue discussing the verdict.
Been a long, painful haul, but we have a verdict!
It ain’t over yet because most likely we will go into the penalty phase.
Aggravators will include whether or not this was a heinous crime.
Murder 2 has an aggravation phase and the judge sentences 4-6 weeks later. 10-25 years, would walk in 5-7 years.
Voluntary Manslaughter: 30-60 days judge sentences to 7-20 years.
Ex-jurors 5, 8, and 11 are seated in court!
Stephens reading verdict.
Guilty of 1 degree!: 5 Premeditated…7 Both…Jury polled and they all say it is their true verdict.
We begin tomorrow at 1:00.
Martinez did a fantastic job on premeditation. 100%!
Entering the third full day of deliberations.
Deliberations currently total 7.5 hours.
Y’all go for it!
