Hey fellow MOMS
Just stopping by to let you all know that today is jury selection.We are headed over the courthouse soon but I wanted to let you all know so you can keep my family in prayer.My prayer is that God hand picks every last one of them.Let's hope that there isn't another delay,this is torture! As you all know we are feeling like enough is enough already.3yrs and 3 months is way too long for justice and to have the court tell you what you can and can not do is just an insult.I love you all and will keep you updated as best I can.XXXXXXXXXXXXOOOOO
Life is funny...Chris' killer had his Plea thought up and he was sentenced within 10 months of Chris' death...and released 14 months later,just 2 yrs had gone by since I talked with him for the last time...and you are just at jury selection. And you have had to wait another 15 months...insane. I have to hope justice will come quickly for you now that they've had so much time to "prepare"
I will keep you in my prayers Barb as I know it won't be easy.
Thank you Lois and Shirley,Trial testimony starts tomorrow.I may excuse myself during the Med Examiner's testimony,not sure yet if I can handle it.Thanks for everyone's support.XXXOOOLove and God Bless
We will be thinking of you and your family knowing how difficult the days ahead will be. The defense can make up all sorts of lies and tell the jury what they think happened when the prosecution has to deal with the facts and evidence. It is so unfair...they tried to say that Lisa's killer might have been coming down to her apartment to ask her for some food or toilet paper and then just decided to kill her after his confession of the premeditation of the murder. So many things were so far fetched. The jury will see through this but it doesn't make it any easier knowing your son is the victim and the murderers are getting the sympathy. Hang in there and know we are all thinking about you. Laura
Barb my thoughts and prayers are with you, I know you'll get a good jury, I know they will see thru all this and Nicky will get the justice he so deserves. I know the waiting is awful. But the trial is awful too, just remember try not to show any emotion, since we were both in Phila. I can just tell you if they are as strict as mine was, keep cells off, no talking, no making faces at the defendant, they will make you leave the court room. Dame's brother had 3 jobs and taking care of his grandmom he fell asleep during a very tedious morning it wasn't his fault, but when they all rose for the judge and he didn't he was thrown out for the duration!!!! Can you believe that, he could not come back for the end of his brother's trial. I felt so bad for him. Then the defendants family trys to start trouble, we had to sit out in the hallway with them there too. Please stay strong and keep us posted. I pray God gives you strength to get thru this and know He will give Nicky justice, I know in my heart He will!!!!
Barb, I also wish I could be there to support you in person but please know that I am there in spirit. You have waited long enough and I hope the trial is speedy and that you get the outcome you want.Love ya
