yea they will decide if she killed him in a "cruel" manner....no brainer really but if they determine she didn't then she can't get death. I believe they said sentencing would be another 6+ wks out.

Jodi did an interview directly after the guilty verdict. she told the guy "death is the ultimate freedom" and i guess the judge took that as she was suicidal so she was placed on suicide watch and they evaluated her for competency also. some are saying the suicide watch is protocol for all convicted murderers, others are saying she really was suicidal. idk

Nurmi sure has his undies in a twist. He's objecting at almost every point of the attack Juan is bringing up. Give it up already she's done.

How long does everybody think it will take the jury to decide? I'm guessing around an hour hopefully less.

not long at all. the people in the court room were told to stay seated so I think it'll be under 30 minutes total. they just showed the verdict clock too, its a 11 minutes

That's good. So if they convict is that when they'll allow the families to give statements to the court?

from my understanding, today they decide of she's eligible for DP. if so, they go to sentencing phase which can last a month or longer. the families give statements during the sentencing phase

Quoting ♫♥♬:" when?"


on the FB page i follow, everybody is saying impact statements will be today. supposedly there is a hearing right now because the judge has to 'approve' the family's statements.
