Petit Family Murders – Komisarjevsky Trial, Final Chapter Being Crafted
Having dragged it out as long as they could (19 1/2 days to be exact), the defense finally rested yesterday in the penalty phase of Komisarjevsky’s trial. The long parade of witnesses – some who seemed rather pointless other than to prolong the agony for the Petit family members – is finally over!
I for one will be happy not to listen to any more of Jeremiah Donovan’s vicious attacks on the Petit family. He went beyond the pale and I believe it did not escape the jury.
So now, the jury has it’s work cut out for them and I’m sure they are anxious to put this behind them!
It will be telling to see just how quickly they write the final chapter of Komisarjevsky’s trial!
