Martin MacNeill Murder Trial – Day 7

10/29/2013

On Friday, we got our first glimpse of Gypsy Willis.  We know that she attended Michele’s funeral.  She claims her relationship with MacNeill was casual.  I’m waiting to see what the text messages will reveal.  Should be very interesting!

Pros saying Gypsy is a hostile witness and protecting MacNeill.  Judge agrees.

Pros also wants 404B info brought in, like the kids weren’t a priority.  Judge says he wants to hear more of Gypsy’s testimony first.

Recess called.

Looks like we’re gonna see the tape of Ada’s interview.

The tape is being played for the court.

Ada is pretty bright!

Says she feels safe living with Alexis.

Sadly, she is struggling talking about MacNeill and says she doesn’t want to talk about it.

Also doesn’t want to talk about Michele because it makes her sad!

You can hear Ada drawing and it’s so frantic it’s scary.

This is heartbreaking.

Remember, it was MacNeill who exclaimed, ‘Ada is ruined”.

When asked questions about her dad, she responds, ‘ I don’t want to talk about it’ each time.

Court ends early at 1:12 MT due to lack of additional witnesses

    Once again thank you donchais. Listening to Ada speak and more importantly, what she did not want to talk about, speaks volumes to me about her father. It also broke my heart for what she and the rest of her family have suffered through.

    I still have so many issues with the lack of followup questions by this prosecution team. There is so much more that could be said. I also think ritanita is right when she says that the jury questions that the judge doesn’t ask are the ones that will stick in the jury’s mind.

    Donchais, I think that you mean that they used April 14th rather June 14th as the date they used as the wedding date.

    • donchais
      10/29/2013 at 3:36 pm

      Yup, corrected, thanks. This pros cannot go into a lot of things due to pretrial motion hearings rulings.

      • MMD
        10/29/2013 at 3:44 pm

        I know and understand that, but it still really pisses me off. I really like this judge though. He gives very thoughtful and reasoned answers.

      • MMD
        10/29/2013 at 3:45 pm

        When Ada said that she felt safe living with Alexis a chill went down my spine. How about you?

      • donchais

        I totally agree with you.

      • 10/29/2013 at 3:56 pm

        I agree, Ada’s reluctance to speak about him pointed to more than what happened that day. Again, let’s not forget one of his adult daughters accused him of fondling her sometime after Michele’s death and he offered some bullshit excuse.

      • donchais
        10/29/2013 at 4:10 pm

        And, he still faces prosecution on that charge!!!

  2. 10/29/2013 at 3:51 pm

    Donchais, MMD and I have a slight difference of opinion about the way the pros. is handling the witnesses. While i agree there are a lot of questions they seem to leave unasked, I think they are doing a solid job of laying a foundation of circumstantial evidence around this guy – what do you think? Spot on summary as always.

    • donchais
      10/29/2013 at 3:55 pm

      Because so much of what the pros wanted was struck down in pretrial, they are pulling bits and pieces out from various witnesses to get to the foundation.

      • 10/29/2013 at 5:10 pm

        that’s a nice political answer kiddo, but you’re supposed to say I’m right and MMD is flat out wrong.

      • MMD
        10/29/2013 at 5:43 pm

        Sorry Beans 🙄 She’s not “supposed” to say just what you want cause after all she is the President of this U and her opinion always overrides yours. smh

      • ritanita
        10/30/2013 at 9:54 am

        ITA, Donchais! Giggling a little… This is a case of prosecution with one hand tied behind the back. Just a reminder to folks, in any trial, the defense gets all the benefit of the doubt to avoid a mistrial or overturn on appeal.

        We may not like it, but in the end, it’s a good thing.

    It’s a bit lengthy – the end is about the JA trial.

      Ah man, some more Kiefer bs? I’m only reading it because you posted it.

  4. 10/29/2013 at 4:28 pm

    Donchais, so you’re saying he still faces charges for sexually assaulting one of his daughters? I know he was accused of it but didn’t realize it was being pursued by the state. Good stuff, let’s bury this guy. As always, thanks for what you do.

  5. 10/29/2013 at 4:35 pm

    Donchais – Sorry about the the “Anonymous” – must have forgotten to log in.
    The Kiefer articles. One other may follow. The eyeballs are getting tired.
    Excellent review as always.

    • 10/29/2013 at 4:48 pm

      and excellent find Jessi. To me the key words are “he was accused by defense attorneys” You have to wonder how many bj’s Kiefer has received from stabby to be so solidly in her corner.

      • 10/29/2013 at 4:57 pm

        Ha, Ha Beans! You’re right on!

      10/29/2013 at 8:36 pm

      Thanks for the link Jessi but all I have to say is consider the source. Michael Kiefer is a long time useless hack whose time has come and gone. His bias is always so beyond obvious that you wonder if he a charter member of the defense attorneys old boys club. Even his tweets during the trial were blatantly biased.

      If I lost a loved one there is no one I would want more than JM to be on my side to get justice because he is passionate and focused. Maybe some defense attorneys could take notes from him as to how to be an effective advocate.

      • 10/29/2013 at 11:57 pm

        He is a jerk! He absolutely hates Juan and will do whatever to slander his name. You are so right about having JM on your side – the man is beyond passion. Loved the comment about the students wanting to be like JM. Screw MK.

        Off topic: I followed some of the Chrisman trial and it was very tormenting at times. The Judge was so pro-defense and I was glad to see some of the outcome put the cop behind bars. Last I heard JM is going for another round. Go Juan!

    Thank you to Donchais for this summary. i was traveling yesterday and the first thing I did upon returning late last night was come to this site and read about what I missed. I missed a lot! I also miss JM and can only think of how he would be handling this trial and how truth and justice would be brought forward with his efforts. I don’t know who is JA’s worst nightmare, JM or herself.

      Morning ritanita. She also said was not is her father. What this girl has gone through prior to being adopted and then this, her composure is astounding.

      • 10/30/2013 at 11:26 am

        She’s a remarkable young lady and how patronizing is that defense attorney.

    10/30/2013 at 11:31 am

    I’m so glad she mentioned the name of the family she and her “sisters” were sent to live with prior to being retrieved by Alexis. Too bad she couldn’t say Martin gave them away after Michelle’s death.

    • MMD

    Question….both Rachel and Sabrina mentioned another adopted sister by the name of Noel (Sabrina said she never met her). The kids in total would be: Rachel, Vanessa, Alexis, Damian, Giselle, Elle, Noel, Sabrina and Ada….9??? Anyone know what happened to Noel?

    • MMD
      10/30/2013 at 11:42 am

      Wasn’t she originally Nicole but there were issues because of the fraud and she changed her name?

    • ritanita
      10/30/2013 at 11:53 am

      I thought Giselle changed her name to Noelle or Noel…

      • MMD
        10/30/2013 at 12:03 pm

        You’re probably right. I can’t keep their names straight.

    • ByeByeJA
      10/30/2013 at 11:56 am

      When Rachel testified she rattled off the siblings names and used both Giselle and Noel….Sabrina said that she hasn’t seen Giselle for a long time and never met Noel. It’s very odd.

      • MMD
        10/30/2013 at 12:04 pm

        I agree it is very odd. I cannot fathom what went on in and out of that house.

Hey, I’ve been catching the testimony just sporadically – so can any of you tell me if Gypsy ever completed nursing school? Please tell me that she’s not a RN – the thought of her practicing nursing I find very scary. Hugs to all of you!

    I would like to make a declarification here. Beans is so much more polite than I am and will not call the female attorney ‘Miss Piggy’ as I do. So, adhering to his standards he is referring to her nicely as ds, which in my mind, I have translated to be ‘dipshit’ as I know he likes that word. Now this is just speculation on my part, which is inadmissible in a court of law however, that is my gut feeling. Kinda like how Mrs. DP, who is greatly missed today, is fond of the endearing term ‘rat bastard’. I think all 3 nicknames totally apply to anyone at the defense table!!!!

    Beans :
    Every one of these kids, though damaged to varying degrees, seem to be exceptionally intelligent yet this guy thought he could fool all of them with his bullshit.

    I totally agree Beans and this is why we so desperately need Syn back because she would be able to tell us whether or not he is a true psychopath and what exactly that thing called “Gypsy” truly is.

    I do know that he is a total narcissist but I need a refresher course from down under.

    • 10/30/2013 at 2:23 pm

      Agree about the need for some down under insight. I see them both as socio’s, but I think he must have been so overbearing, so domineering, a bully, if you will, that he thought he could coerce his kids into believing his crap concerning Michele’s death and never took into account how smart they were.

      • MMD
        10/30/2013 at 2:27 pm

        And of course when he was talking to the pathologist what he told her about what happened would be subconsciously in the back of her mind so she may not have been as thorough as she would normally have been. After all, he was considered a ‘well respected physician’ in the area.
