The Stabby Arias Penalty Phase Re-Trial – Whip Your Hair Back and Forth Edition

Deanna Reid for President! – Arizona
(I will apologize for the video now, but it is the one that really sums Stabby up the best today so…Sorry.)

Hai everybody. The verdict is in for the Vandy Trial.  Guilty on all charges  for Vandenburg and Gatey!!  YAY!!

Court started with a bang today. It started without the Jury since Alfred E. had his panties all up in a bunch about Deanna Reid and Abe A and the Bishop testifying. He said they were only told about Deanna and the Bishop last week and Abe yesterday. Of course he had to know that Juan was calling them so this is all just for the record bullshit. Not a Judge Stephens succinctly denied the motion to preclude but said she would limit Abe’s testimony and give them time to interview him.

Not a Judge Stephens then turned to Stabby and asked if she was planning on continuing the magical mystery testimony to which Stabby said naw. Then she put a really sad face on and told the Judge she would like too, but for the reasons given in chambers she won’t. Juan grinned as he informed the room he would NOT be striking Stabby’s testimony. Ahahahahahahaha. Nurmi then freaked the fuck out again and told Not a Judge Stephens that he doesn’t want the jury hearing that Stabby will not finish her testimony…because the jury isn’t going to wonder why Juan never cross examined her right? Not a Judge Stephens rolled her eyes and recessed court so that Abe could be interviewed.

All the lawyers trooped back to chambers for a moment and then came back because good ole’ whiney pants wanted to be on the record. Alfred E told the court that due to the late disclosure and lack of time with the witness Stabby wants to be present during interview. He then mumbled “because she is totally running this show” under his breath. Not a Judge Stephens booted the gallery and closed the courtroom. She said that Stabby could stay so her feelings didn’t get hurt. Alfred E says he doesn’t want Travis’ family present. Juan says they have a right to be there. Judge Solomon compromises and says Travis’ family can listen from jury room. Juan is cool with that.

Alfred E. still objected to having the victims family being able to listen to the interview but not a Judge Stephens was over it and told him to move on. Nurms looked like he might be headed for a stroke. Next he said he was concerned with the character assassination of Stabby by Abe and I put pop through my nose. So…POINTS for Alfred E.

(no Jury)
Abe discussed making out with Stabby (barf)and putting his hand down her pants in a parking structure.(I have to dig out the Pretoria puke bucket, be right back.) Nurmi didn’t want Abe’s testimony allowed because he didn’t want Stabby to be considered promiscuous. Wait what? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Juan wants to discuss manipulation of Travis Alexander by Stabby. Stabby’s defense doesn’t want this heard. Alfred E. looks pleadingly at the Judge and asked if the court would pretty please with sugar on top reconsider allowing Abe to testify. Nope, nuh uh. Stabby called Abe and asked him to lie about their physical contact if Travis asked according to Juan. Juan brought up the magic panties and Stabby suddenly and creepily smiled. The bailiff saw it too and immediately started biohazard procedures on his eyes. Stabby is making googoo eyes at Abe and she flipped her hair. TWICE. Not a Judge Stephens asked why Juan wanted to ask Abe about Stabby asking him to lie to Travis? Juan said it was to discredit her honesty. Stabby started furiously whispering to Jenny who was hitting her bong as hard as she could. Juan kept insisting that this was relevant to credibility. Stabby looked totally disgusted that Not a Judge Stephens was allowing her fake mitigation to be destroyed. Alfred E. huffed and puffed and said credibility is not relevant in penalty phase. Wait what? Nurmi demanded a chance to recall Abe after looking through all of his interviews and blog once the state has completed their direct. The Jury is finally brought in. The defense officially rested with no other mitigation witnesses. None of her family testified. Abe is officially on the stand.

(jury present)
Juan wandered up to the overhead or whatever it is and displayed the email from Stabby to Abe on screen and asked if he was that Abe. Yes he answered. Abe looked like he was not amused that he had been dragged into this any deeper than he already was. Jenny was poised to spit the word “Objection” the second that she got a chance. I hope the objectomatic was oiled during the break. It is learned that during their 3rd date over dinner Stabby made the statement that she “dabbled in Mormonism.” In Stabbyland that means you call yourself a Mormon and do whatever you want.

After the date Abe walked Jodi back to car and they had physical contact. Abe said they kissed and got into it. It was passionate for about 15 minutes. (glad I found the bucket!!) Juan asked about Abe putting his hand down her pants and Jenny deployed the objectomatic for leading. It took her a second to find the button through the cloud of weed smoke. Jury still heard it though. Stabby called Abe days after their date to tell him she was getting back with her ex. Stabby complained about Travis not committing for most of 2007, to which Abe said he told Stabby that it sounded like Travis Alexander was not as interested in her as she was in him. (Ladies and gentlemen give the man a prize for the understatement of the decade.) Stabby called Abe & said “We have a problem because she told Travis about their date…THAT HAPPENED A YEAR BEFORE. Abe responded, WE don’t have a problem. He said he was pretty mad that she made such a big deal out of it and that they were no longer friends after that point. The email that she sent to Travis and allegedly to Abe was brought up. Abe said he did not get the email. The Jury was asked to exit stage left momentarily. Jenny began her cross. She asked Abe if he’s using Stabby to market himself and his business. I’m totally serious, she asked him that. Abe just sighed loud enough for the microphone to pick up and said a sardonic uh no. Jenny then asked Abe if Stabby was wearing capri pants on their date because I don’t know why. Maybe she thinks Capri’s ARE the look. She next asked if Abe was 13yrs older than Stabby and he corrected her to say 17years. He was very cocky as he said it. Alfred E was the one that requested that the magic panties not be mentioned so of course Jenny brought them up knowing that Abe could not explain himself. If she was going for making him look bad, I don’t think it worked. Jenny snapped “You don’t recall reading this email, correct?” Abe fired back that he never received it. Juan just sat back, smiled slightly and munched a goodboy treat. So, you don’t recall reading this email she tried. Abe was not the one today though because he snapped back again “I never received this email.” He drew it out like maybe Jenny would understand better if he spoke slowly. Jenny said well it could have bounced or gone to spam. It was meant to be a statement but she was rattled enough it sounded like she was trying to reconcile it in her own mind.

Juan was up and as usual he has fire coming out of his nose. It isn’t the witnesses I have finally decided. He is furious that he has to deal with this amount of stupid and he takes it out on whatever is in front of him. Juan asked if Abe had some special email that didn’t contain his email address and magically got to his email anyway? Abe chuckled slightly and said no. Juan asked if this was a homing pigeon email that gets to him without an address listed in the TO: section. I’d like to request a sidebar because I just peed a little. Abe, trying desperately not to start laughing said no and added that he got all the other emails from Stabby. Juan asked about Stabby asking him for advice regarding Travis. Abe told Stabby not to be so attached to Travis and go meet another guy when she would complain.

No Jury questions. Abe was dismissed with an admonition because he will be recalled.

Deanna Reid takes the stand!! Deanna left for Costa Rica in June 2000 and didn’t come home for over a full year. She came back in Nov 2001 Deanna said she kept in touch with Travis while she was gone via snail mail. After awhile Travis told Deanna he was seeing someone else. Deanna didn’t know the name of the person. She said she had been to Bishop Parker’s house and that she has never met witness 1 AKA Marc McFuckstick. After her mission Travis wasn’t even living at Bishop’s house. The Objectomatic was deployed but way too late. And the last shred of mitigation witness testimonyaffidavit went right out the window. Deanna said that Travis never touched her in any way and that incident never happened. Juan apparently wanted to drive the point home and barked at Deanna. This never happened he queried. Deanna repeated very strongly that Travis never harmed her or shouted “get it through your fuckin head I will never marry you. Stabby will not look at Deanna right now. Juan asked about Marc McFucksticks fiancé or whatever consoling her. He was dripping sarcasm, or maybe it was the rabies I’m not sure, but he was foaming. Deanna said no one ever consoled her because this never happened. It came out like a gunshot. Jenny from the cellblock put down the joint she was rolling and tried to do damage control. Good luck with that Jenny. Jenny started by asking Deanna if she wasn’t exactly truthful when it came to Travis. Deanna said I’ve always told the truth.” Jenny asked well weren’t you misleading when the defense interviewed you? Deanna answered back sharply “the only one misleading here is you!” Jenny completely lost her shit and asked for an approach. Juan pretty much skipped up to the bench. Deanna got a quick reprimand from the Judge to just answer the questions and not interject anything. I think Deanna should interject away personally. If Dr.(notadoctor)Geffner can ramble on, Deanna should too. A transcript was produced and Jenny wanted Deanna to read it. Deanna said there was audio and she would rather have that. Deanna is mad! If she was any hotter she would be on fire. Jenny tried desperately to get Deanna under control. She told Deanna to just read the transcript “You can read can’t you?” Deanna looked at Jenny like she’d like to punch her directly in her face and said yes. Deanna said she wanted to hear the audio of what she said in this transcript. Jenny requested sidebar number (I don’t know I lost count days ago) Deanna won’t answer Jenny. Apparently Deanna is harshing her mellow because she said “Well you had no problem answering Mr Martinez questions” The pitbull managed to object without bursting out laughing and said “I didn’t ask her about an audio” like an innocent little lamb. Alfred E. started bitching about having Deanna declared a hostile witness.(Oh, she was fucking hostile all right.) Since Not a Judge Stephens only noticed in that minute that the courtroom had pretty much been reduced to pandemonium court was called for the day. Late start tomorrow and due to scheduling conflicts no court on Thurs or Friday. BEST COURT DAY EVER!! I cannot wait for tomorrow.

    Love you Kelley!’ Deanna for President’ had me smiling from ear to ear. She’s my HERO! I can’t stand this judge who allows her courtroom and this process — that is supposed to be a search for the truth, to be absconded by the defense’s trickery. Not one word about her remorse and the defense rests.

    I have never seen such hypocrisy – that ALL of JA’s LIES have been not just allowed by this judge but have become the near SOLE focus of all court testimony for months on end BUT the truth of what this killer said can’t be uttered in court! JSS is so far down the rabbit hole that I’m speechless!

    My understanding of the process of law that this jury will use to make their decision of life or death is that they are instructed to take each mitigator and weigh whether how much cruelty and suffering Travis experienced is offset by each of the defense’s mitigation factors. If they follow the law, it’s death.

    • reallybigmeandog says:

      Hai Nancy! I was very, very impressed with Miss Reid today. She obviously loved Travis very much because she was LIVID! She needs to reel it in a bit though because Not a Judge will have to declare her hostile and then Jenny or Numnuts can have at her. If they follow the law I would agree, and I would temper that by saying I believe all Jurors try to follow the instructions they are given, but when you have a life in your hands I think it is very easy to glom onto anything to not have that on your conscience. At this point, I don’t care whether she gets death or not as long as she never gets out, I just want some peace for that poor family.

      • Mama Via says:

        “Love” per se…can come and go, as we all know…whereas LOYALTY, RESPECT and DEVOTION…true FRIENDSHIP lasts all of your life…and beyond! This “Travis-ty” of a trial is allowing that self-centered, narcisstic, wannabe photographer, clue-less excuse of a human bean (sic) sit there with that wanna-slap-that-ugly-smirk on her ever-aging, pig-nosed, flat-headed face!

        Hold on…I’m working on anger issues….
        Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō….

      • TBrehmer says:

        You know, I truly believe that Travis showed up yesterday, via Deanna, To say what she did, PRICELESS, and wayyy over due!! Thank you Deanna/Travis!! Thank you Kelly again for a most excellent run down of trial minutes(literally) You never cease to plant a big ole smile and giggle on my face, much love and admiration ❤

      • Nancy B says:

        I care very much if she gets Life. I don’t believe she should have *any* opportunity to take college courses or have a job or more
        privileges. I want 23 hour per day solitary. I want no face to face visits or 6 times a year weekend picnics where family can bring her favorite foods that she misses and likes. I want visits only conducted through glass, food eaten in her solitary cell. If there were a penalty that allowed all of that without eventually *maybe* getting the needle then that would satisfy me BUT we DON’T currently have that option. I want all the crapola with Twitter and T shirt selling and incorporated art selling scams to immediately stop. I want the death penalty because she truly is deserving of it. I can’t tell you how freaked out and really shocked I was to see her purposefully giving Samantha the throat slit gesture after Samantha’s VIS.I had to watch it several times because I just had such difficulty in believing what I was seeing. SOOOO manipulative and totally EVIL. There is not even a smidgen of contrition in her soulless shell. Too bad Juan can’t replay her throat slit gesture to Samantha for this jury. Mickee D caught it and there is absolutely NO doubt how intentional that gesture is. She is true EVIL personified!

        The gesture is at 36:04 but start it a few seconds prior. Unbelievable.

      • TBrehmer says:

        I just watched it, heartbreaking to listen to! And, YES, the stupid, heartless WENCH DID do the throat slash!! Goes to show the evil that she truly IS, and ALWAYS will be!! Death Penalty Please and Thank You!!

      • Ruthanne says:

        I agree with Nancy B, I want her in solitary with no privileges. We really need that option too, but since she prob will never get the needle even if she gets beat, then death is the right verdict even for people who don’t believe in it.

      • Nancy B says:

        Sorry – Here is the right link:

      • Nancy B says:

        And here is the view of Samantha glaring at JA as she finished her VIS and was walking to take her seat. It happened for just a few split seconds and it was barely caught on tape. This clip replays it in slow motion for you to see. It’s at the end.

  2. giz says:

    Deanna hit it out of the park. Young lady is not going to be pushed around by wormie a willynot

  3. jtisdal says:

    OMG Kelly, you are so right on! Thanks for the laughs! It was a good day in the life of Juansville. I love DEANNA!!!!

    • reallybigmeandog says:

      Hai Jtisdal: It was a great day for the state today for sure. Unfortunately the jury only saw a bit of it. I don’t know if you noticed that I split it into with and without the Jury. And court got called early I think because it had just become a free for all. Deanna Reid is a wonderful woman and Travis was lucky to have her as a friend.

  4. Samantha says:

    Thankyouthankyou 😄 I love your blog so much! Hahahahaha! You are the best! Me too, can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.

  5. hbbeachbun says:

    Once again a grand synopsis of the day. Best blog ever! Yes, kudos to Deanna she was the star of the day.

    • reallybigmeandog says:

      Hai hb: Thank you. It was a fantastic day and Deanna Reid impressed the hell out of me. She obviously really loved Travis and I think that is going to carry a huge amount of weight.

  6. Teresa says:

    I was so excited when I read that Deanna stated the only one misleading was Willmott!! OMG! Star of the Day! Great blog, enjoyed every word.

    • reallybigmeandog says:

      Hai Teresa: I peed a little when she said that. She obviously really cared about her friend. I’m only worried that Alfred E. will succeed in having her declared hostile. Different rules for examining a hostile witness.

      • TrulyUSA says:

        Sure hope he’s not successful in that, but I know she and Juan have a plan and Deanna is one smart cookie! They will push just oh-so-far but not far enough for that to occur — I hope!

  7. renaes24 says:

    What do you make of Stephens asking Nurmi if he was adding to or filing yet another motion for misconduct? Bothers me. Was she asking or suggesting?

  8. reallybigmeandog says:

    I think it was judicial error. That should have never been said and I’m sorry I didn’t catch it.

  9. Rosie Grace says:

    It was a great day so glad for your recap. Can’t wait until tomorrow.

  10. Laura hickey says:

    Great blog Kelly … As ALWAYS!! I’m a little pissed that Deanna was admonished for what she said to Wilmot, particularly when you think about statements such as “are u mad at me mr Martinez” and all the other numerous snarky remarks from several defense witnesses that were allowed. I’m hoping the jury saw those as less than professional, and thus decided their testimony was not as credible or whatever. But Juan’s got this, so I’m not worried! Thanks again Kelly. Hope you’re feeling ok. (P.s. in the for-what-it-matters column, I do not like or respect Not a blogger, whose name I refuse to utter.)

    • Mama Via says:

      Laura…I sure wish that I could have heard the “admonishment”…as you know…some are only stated because not to do so would cause a big issue later….some are said with a “do t try that again, Bucko!” Voice…it would be nice to know which voice was used?

      (BTW…not-a-blogger, not-a-journalist? WE have no idea WHO you might be referring to! We don’t read not-an-articles/not-a-blogs…usually because they are usually filled with what-a-bunch-of-unproven-crap-and-gossip type shit…and our lives are way too short to get involved in someone else’s hallucinations and mental break-down…)

      • Mama Via says:

        Oh…and the one screaming “DONT YOU DARE CALL ME CRAZY!” Usually is…and usually needs to be force fed her medications white wearing a pretty white “wrap-around” jacket….or “oh-so-comfy” 4-point restraint!

      • Ruthanne says:

        Amen to that last bit, I SO agree, esp about the not wanting to be called crazy part. Me thinks thou protesteth too much.

        I too would like to have heard the admonishment, but in my head I pictured it as a “I have to say this because the DT asked me to” kind of thing, not a real “watch it missy” kind of thing.

    • TrulyUSA says:

      I hope Deanna uses that line today, that would be awesome! “Are you mad at me Ms. Willmott?” Hahahah!

      • TrulyUSA says:

        Or better yet, “do you need a time out Ms. Willmott?” Hey they can’t call her hostile if she uses the same language as the defense witnesses, right? That would be hilarious!!

      • renaes24 says:

        Unfortunately, THESE jurors wouldn’t get the reference. LaToilet testilied in the guilt phase.

      • Samantha says:

        hahahahahaha truly, that would be hilarious! go deanna go! deanna for president! 😀

  11. Connie Rust says:

    Great one as usual Kelly. Laura I too was so pissed that Deanna got a whippin for that SO TRUE remark to Wilma; while Alice in Wonderland called Juan slimy and tried to put him in timeout without so much as a smack on the wrist from not a judge Sherry. Can she (JSS) at least try to hide her bias just a little??? Kelly why don’t you just boot Sherry and take her place on the bench? You are a way better judge than she is (sorry I know that’s not much of a measurement but it is meant as a compliment). As for Deanna….she hit it out of the park alright! I don’t think Juan will let it go far enough for her to be declared hostile. You know he prepped her well and I’m sure she’s smart enough to know how far she can push Wilma. Deanna doesn’t need to push the whole transcript/audio issue any further. She got it out there that she doesn’t trust the DT’s transcript and the jury heard it. I think that’s enough. Maybe court was ended so abruptly today so the pit bull could arrange for the vet to bring extra darts tomorrow for Deanna. I am soooo pumped for tomorrow! Hugs….

  12. BlueWhiteRed says:

    Not a lawyer, but I don’t think DT can have Deanna called hostile. It’s for the purpose of being allowed to ask leading questions. She’s a State witness, right? If she were uncooperative with Juan, HE can ask for her to be declared hostile, to get to ask leading questons (yes/no questions). Since she is cooperative with him, point moot. JSS can admonish DR to answer DT q’s but not declare her hostile. Hope that helps. BWR, not Esq.

    • BlueWhiteRed says:

      Ps if I misread the post re Juan making sure Deanna isn’t declared hostile, sorries! My reply is right but I think I misread the sitch–y–ay–shun (situation, feeling silly)! Loving Deanna’s strength and pluck! (And Abe, I swear that guy’s been waiting 7 years to vent!)

    • Mama Via says:

      Mornin, Blue! Big hugs to you and Mrs Blue!

    • Ruthanne says:

      You are correct, to my knowledge Blue, I said something similar in my post. I really should read all of the comments before I post mine. LOL I got the info on that from an attorney friend, and asked Kelly to ask hers as well, but if you heard the same thing, I’m thinking it is a safe bet we are correct. Tough luck for the DT, funny thing is, Wormy should know this is how it works. Did someone say he actually asked for her to be declared hostile? If so, he is showing more proof he doesn’t know how the law/rules of the court work, which is just pitiful IMO.

  13. Bazzethound says:

    Awesomeness from KellyMae! I thought you were just making me giggle when you recounted Deanna’s reply to Jennyfromthecellblock. The fact that it actually happened is even better. My panties are still dry, but I did laugh out loud!

  14. Mama Via says:

    How bout we call NotALawyer WilSnot “hostile”, and keep her from asking questions! “You CAN read, can’t you?” Kiss my big, fat, lily white ass, you stupid fukking excuse-for-a-lawyer, broom-flying, high-as-a-kite c-nt!! Ok, you’ve pushed me far enough, call out the fukking flying monkeys and the sleep-till-it-snows (or at least till this travesty of a trial is over) poppy fields!

    Ok, breathe, mama, breathe…and go take your breathing treatment, put the drops in your eyes and get some fukkin coffee….

    Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō.peacing the fuck out, Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō, peacing the fuck out…..

  15. Tyla says:

    Wonderful post Kelly, again 🙂 Deanna and Abe out did themselves today for Travis ….. what upset me the most (although everything this stupid judge does seems to upset me more and more everyday) when JSS asks Alfred E ” if he is going to supplement another motion for mistrial because of prosecutor misconduct” – what the fuck, who does this ….. NOT a judge! I thought I was going to go through this laptop and punch this idiot who needs to be disbarred!

    Then pothead jenny asking Abe ” if he’s using ja‪‬ to market himself & his business.” Now who would use a convicted killer to market their business ….. NOT a sane person but a slimy attorney would!

    When Deanna told pothead jenny she was misleading I almost pissed my pants laughing – I wanted to give this girl a big hug for saying that out loud 🙂

    Great day in court, only wish this was televised as I would have loved to have seen ja’s face when Abe and Deanna where on the stand.

    • Mama Via says:

      “Are you using JA to market yourself and your business?”

      “No, I’m not a slimy defense attorney!” (Who spends the hours either asleep in the barca-lounger, or wasting the day away in a Chronic state of mind!)

    • Ruthanne says:

      What upsets me most about JSS is that the day before I actually thought she was getting wiser and leaning in a more objective and fair direction, and then this day happens and she proves nothing has changed!!

      I heard watching Willnotshutup and Deanna was a treat, and I can’t wait for some video on THAT to come out!!

  16. TrulyUSA says:

    Such a great recap! I can’t wait to see what Deanna says today. This is getting really good now! I think Abe successfully nailed her (pardon the term) on her lack of morality. Her sleaziness factor had to hit a 10 on a scale of 1-10 with the jury. Once Deanna has more time today, I have no doubt that her innate goodness will come across and Stabby’s innate evil will show through so completely that the jurors will all shudder a little! Thanks Kelly, as always, You Rock!

    • Nancy B says:

      I heard that Deanna was v-e-r-y distraught after her testimony yesterday and cried uncontrollably in Juan’s office after court. While she came across on the stand as very self-confident she was in great turmoil and her aggressive style answering defense questions is not her normal. A moderator at Karas on Crime who is very close with her posted this and requested that we all send loving energy and strength to her.

  17. TrulyUSA says:

    P.S. — love the video Kelly! It was spot on!

  18. Jodie Finney says:

    Another great blog. So love waking up to these. Best visual from yesterday? Juan ” pretty much skipped up to the bench…” lol so so funny!

  19. Twister says:

    Damn girl!! Write on as only you can do. You know you almost got me in trouble at work yesterday as I chocked back giggles.

  20. Mama Via says:

    Thought for the day….so…let’s assume that saying “you are the Worst thing that ever happened in my life” “earns” a “three times over” “death penalty”….how many crazy people would be left after the carnage was over? ONG…I’ve said THAT (and worse) MANY times..especially when I was young and still had hormones (or in Arias’ case-WhoreMoans!).

    How many times have we said something due to our frustration, anger, or disgust with someone? Usually, our anger subsides…and I shall never forget the day one of my schoolmates said “OMG, how I wish my husband would just DIE!”…and less than a month later, that wonderful man was killed when he tried to avoid hitting a deer, and went head-on into a tree…I’ve always wondered if she ever felt remorse….she certainly never EXPRESSED any guilt…(I’ve been beating myself up for 38 years because I said to someone else “My sister has been visiting for a month! At this point, I don’t care if I NEVER see her again!” And in less than 24 hours, she was killed (with my dad and nephew) in a car accident…

    As much as I SAY “I want to beat the “snark” out of my step-grandson!”…I know that, truly, I couldn’t lay a hand on him! As many times as I told my 2 year old son “Son, if you throw that toy to the floor one more time, I’m going to kill you!” (It wasn’t until one day he responded “oh, please don’t kill me AGAIN, Mom!” That I realized what I was SAYING! (And so it became “you are going to be in BIG trouble!”)

    I just cannot imagine actually KILLING someone…let alone in three different ways!…and still being able to live with myself…

    I believe that there was one bit od truth to the “Get it thru your fucking head, I’m NEVER going to marry you!” It was said to ARIAS….not Deanna!

    • Ruthanne says:

      I agree, I don’t think he said it like that at all to anyone, but if he did, or anything remotely close to that, it WAS surely to Stabby!

      I am so worried about words, saying things that could later happen, that I don’t even say things like “love you to death” or “love you to pieces” even. I am so worried about that crap happening somehow. If my kids said something about I wish you weren’t my mother, or I want to be on my own with no mother, I would tell them to be careful what they wish for.

      Of course now that they are grown, I am all that. LOL They can’t stop calling and want my opinion on everything. Funny how that works. I have girls, don’t know if boys are the same, but I was awesome when they were little, then through the teens and early 20s awful, now I’m awesome again. Their friends still thought I was awesome when they didn’t, but now they get it. I am pretty awesome, there’s just a period of blindness to that with young girls. LOL

    • Tyla says:

      You hit it on the nail Mama Via, I also believe Travis said that to ja too and not Deanna. Boy it must be killing her (ja) that Abe and Deanna stood strong and was forceful in their answer’s to stupid jenny on the block. They both reminded me of Dr. DeMarte …. truth – firm – proud! Would of loved to see ja’s POS face

    Hi Kelly,
    I’ve been following your blog for a looong time, but have never posted before. However, after reading your last 2 blogs, I just had to !
    You, my dear, are SO, SO funny – I “lol” constantly !!
    Totally cracked up today @ “…started biohazard procedures on his eyes !” OMG !!
    Yes, ‘ol Stabby is a piece of work – isn’t she ?! You feel greasy just looking at her…. ick, puke, hack…
    Yesterday was a fine day in court, I must say ! Sort of wondered why Silly Willy would bring up the capri pants. I thought for sure that would somehow get the “magic panties” out there, but alas…it was not to be 😦
    I’m sure this has been discussed here before, but I’m positive the comment that was obviously NOT made to Deanna about…”get it through your f’ing head I’m not going to marry you…WAS made to Stabby. Funny how those little tiny bits of truth are scattered about her packs of lies.
    The other thing that completely drives me nuts is Stabby’s minions (aka her defense) totally insulting and undermining this jury’s intelligence !! I’m certain these folks have this bitch totally figured out ! Looking forward to this afternoon’s session 🙂
    From one Canadian girl to another…. keep up the splendid

      Hahaha! Great minds think alike! I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it…”get it thru your fukking head” to arias…I managed to say that 3 minutes before you did!

      No shit, Sherlock!

      • Sherlock1005 says:

        Hi Mama V – Yes…hahahaha…I’m just new here, so I was hoping that none of you would think I was copying someone else ! I was still in moderation at the time and saw your post later….:)
        No Kelly today ? Hope everything is OK

      • Mama Via says:

        Sherlock…It was definitely Great Minds then! Haha! Yep, kelly will post new blog in a little bit…I think she had a late start due to wrestling her mattress this morning…I do that, too, cuz my back refuses to get comfortable…and the mattress always wins! Papa bought Boo a “Tempurpedic Bed”…and I’ve decided that next time I commence to fighting the mattress, I’m gonna go sleep with the dog…he seems to have the best bed in the house!

    One last thought (or not)….IF Juan doesn’t have Arias testiphony stricken…what did she say or do that serves the prosecution?

    • Schaeffer says:

      I don’t think it is what she said that is of use to the prosecution, it is that keeping her aborted testimony in allows Juan to play portions of her testimony from the first trial in lieu of being able to cross examine her. Juan will be able to pick and choose what to show, but the defense will also get to play some of her testimony, cherry picking for their own perspective. However, she was such an awful witness, I can’t imagine what they would choose to play that would show her in a facorable light.

      I have to believe Juan is giving the defense enough rope to hang themselves, which is why he let Willmott act like such a horse’s ass crossing/attacking Abe and especially Deanna. I may be completely wrong on all of this, though. Such is the inherent danger of trying to apply logic to an insane situation.

    • Ruthanne says:

      I think at least part of his decision goes to the fact that I think she made herself look like a complete loser, never holding a job, not staying in one place for very long, jumping from guy to guy. She pretty much showed how she followed the guys around and got a new job or living arrangement with or through them.

      There was a change in her story of how she got the job where Darryl was, I’m hoping Juan plays that from the first trial and shows another change in her story.

      She said before Matt got that job first and she got it through him, (which is why she ended up living with him in the tent or whatever), and Darryl was Matt’s boss first, then hers. This time she made up a whole new set of people, a convoluted way of hearing about the job and going there, and claiming Matt came AFTERward, I think to break up the pattern of following ex bf’s to get jobs, meet the next bf, etc…

      Ultimately though, I think Juan really doesn’t care either way, she didn’t say anything that could help her, so he probably doesn’t need to cross. Juan is not one to sweat the small stuff, or feel the need to counter every single lie, (the trial really would NEVER end), he just worries about what he feels is important to counter, proves what he needs to against her, and moves on. He’s got this, whichever way he goes with this situation.

      • renaes24 says:

        Since JM can only rebut what she said in her ‘testi-lies’, he might have not wanted it stricken so he can perhaps play her after-being-found-guilty interview w/ Troy Haden (?) where she says that her attorneys say she “has no mitigation/her mama didn’t beat her enough and there was no drug abuse” as a rebuttal Would work for me!
        As for the bouncing from (low)job to (low)job and moving from place to place, not to mention changing from man to man, I think the jury doesn’t need that pointed out to them (again).

      • Mama Via says:

        Renae…did you say from (blow) job to (blow) job? Good one!

  23. Schaeffer says:

    Doesn’t it go without saying that ANY witness called by one side is HOSTILE to the other side? I thought one could only declare one’s OWN witness hostile; it seems obvious to me.

    • BlueWhiteRed says:

      Hi Schaeffer — totally understand what you’re saying and yes, it seems obvious. A good example of asking for a witness to be declared hostile (by request and approval of the Judge) was when Chris and Sky Hughes were called by the defense and, openly uncooperative. Had Nurmi asked and requested permission to treat his own witnesses (Hughes’) as “hostile” he would be allowed to ask only yes/no (leading) questions. “You sent that email because you wanted to tell Travis he was a Casanova, RIGHT?” Instead of what is supposed to happen on Direct Exam, “Why did you send Travis that email?” Chris hemmed/hawwed (understandably) but was admonished to answer. I don’t believe Nurmi asked to treat as hostile.

      The cross-examination is supposed to be yes/no. If the witness does not want to cooperate (ALV for example), the attorney will ask the Judge to admonish the witness to answer. It’s assumed the crossing questioning is not cooperative, but Hostile is a legal principle reserved for Direct Exam. That’s why you’ll hear the crossing attorney “Object-Leading” when the Direct Exam attorney is asking yes/no —- that attorney is trying to direct his witness to the answer he wants. Leading is allowed on Cross.

      Sorry if I made this more confusing, really…..

      • Ruthanne says:

        Very thorough explanation Blue! Awesome! So that makes 3 of us now on the same page about what hostile is used for. 🙂 Of course, I’m still reading comments…

      • Schaeffer says:

        Sorry to be dense, but I still don’t get it. I understand your explanation, but I still think an attorney can only have their own witness declared hostile, not the opposing counsel’s witness.

    • reallybigmeandog says:

      Scheffer: I put a comment in but maybe I better edit so everybody sees it. I made an error when I said that Deanna could be declared hostile. I think Nurmi was making a statement not asking for her to be declared hostile. I posted before I asked, I just assumed I knew. The explanation I was given was that only the side that calls the witness can have them declared hostile and then the rules of examination change. You can ask the witness leading questions if they are declared hostile. In a nutshell. I am going to go google it and see if there are rules by state or whatever but Yes you are correct.

  24. CarlT says:

    👊 bam. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 I hope JM can get in that TA willed his dog to her. Couldn’t wait to read your blog Kelly!

  25. Ruthanne says:

    Deanna for President!! Yes, I vote yes! Although how will that effect your bid for Supreme Ruler of the Universe, because I voted for that too?

    I have always loved Deanna, and I love her more now! I’m so sure seeing her upsets Stabby because she knows that Deanna was Travis’ one true love, and if he could have changed things, he would have married her, he knew he screwed up there in hesitating on marriage. What causes Stabby discomfort is Juanderful to me!

    Now as to the whole hostile witness nonsense, my understanding from attorneys is that you can only have your OWN witness declared hostile, (it is usually someone who you had to force to testify by subpoena and therefore they are uncooperative), not the other side’s witness. Kelly please check that with your attorney friend also and see what he says. So IMO that won’t fly. Besides, so far it was one comment, (a truthful one) and a discomfort in testifying to a transcript when there is audio you feel is more accurate, (which I think should be your right if you feel the transcript may be incorrect, as well as just the smartest decision), so even if the DT COULD get her labeled as hostile, I don’t think she has done anything worthy of that. And if Juan wanted to argue and compare, he’s got plenty of ammo from how the DT witnesses behaved and Not a Judge did NOTHING about any of it.

    And while we are on the subject of what Wormy, I also don’t think he will get a mistrial because Juan slipped and said the last name of the affiant that a) is a fairly common name, b) lives in another country, c) the jury, if they really don’t know anything and aren’t paying attention, won’t know anyway, and d) everyone on SM already knows who he is and what he has been saying, and without Juan’s slip already had pegged so it was no secret anyway. I do wonder what on earth he could possibly have to add to the Motion though, but apparently Not a Judge knows, since she reminded/suggested whatever, spoke to him about it. Any ideas as to what he may have added? Maybe wah wah Juan brought Abe here to tell the truth, not fair?

    Things that make you go HUH?!…

    Wormy claiming JA’s credibility doesn’t matter in this phase.

    Not a Judge “suggesting” Wormy add to his Motion, (it sure read that way to me).

    Not a Judge telling Abe the Blunt, what he CAN’T say, even if it is true, (especially in light of all the permitted untruths running rampant in that courtroom). Although I think he said enough in the presence of the jury to make Stabby the Hoe look bad and quite different than the DT would have the jury believe, and Willnotshutup even helped drive the point home in her feeble and failed attempt at making Abe the Blunt look bad.

    Not a Judge allowing Stabby to be present while DT interviewed Abe the Blunt. Seriously? Is that fair to the witness? I bet he was a bit uncomfortable. I hope she was in chains so he at least felt safe, but since she was in street clothes in the courtroom where she was going to be before the jury, I have a feeling she wasn’t restrained. I think if I were the witness in that situation I would have tried to object, UNLESS she was chained or kept FAR from me at least. Maybe I would have even requested that just to be a bitch. (evil smirk) :]

    I feel like I had more WTF moments, but they are slipping my mind at present, (lack of sleep–I can’t wait till this trial is over and Stabby is history), I’ll add later as I think of them again.

    Great synopsis as always with perfect humor and insight. Keep up the great work, Kelly!! Please don’t change a thing about you or how you write or think!

  26. reallybigmeandog says:

    Sorry guys I made a comment about hostile witnesses because I “thought I knew” before I asked about it. I am incorrect. A witness apparently can only be declared hostile by the side that calls them. That is how it was explained to me anyway, but I will go look it up just to make sure.

  27. Ruthanne says:

    Kelly, I remember my other question that made me say WTF?

    The affidavit business…it is illegal for the Defense, (or either side’s attorney) to put on evidence/witness testimony, including an affidavit, that the attorney KNOWS to be a lie. ILLEGAL. Alright, maybe against the rules of the court, BUT A REALLY SERIOUS THING.

    The DT KNEW that McFuckStick was lying because they knew the dates Deanna was on her mission, they knew the dates she and TA started and stopped dating, and started again, (all was in first trial, obtained in prior interviews), I think they even knew when TA moved from Bishop’s home! So how do they get away with allowing the testiphony based on McFuckStick’s PERJURIOUS AFFIDAVIT?! Why have they not been called out on that and sanctioned?? WTF!?

  28. shenson1209 says:

    Great blog, as usual Kelly.

  29. Jen Kane says:

    Nice analysis Kelly. I was seriously laughing out loud.

  30. Schaeffer says:

    Kelly, et al — do your best with this. The first is WOBO’s letter to Travis that was probably the beginning of the end for Travis. The second is an FBI analysis of WOBO’s letter to Travis’s family after her arrest.

    FAIR WARNING TO ALL — take any and all blood pressure. heart, anti-anxiety, or psychotropic meds before reading or watching. I did not take my meds, and I think I am going to have a stroke. I forgot how I reacted to this letter the first time around.

    letter to Travis —

    letter to Travis’s family

    Not sure if I have been moderated yet or not,(hope so) but…Court done until Monday !! LOL ! Stabby’s non testifying “lying sack of poo witness” vs. Deanna (teacher of Autistic child and all around wonderful person) & a Mormon Bishop !!
    HAHAHAHAHAHA !! How did that go for you today Wormi and Willy ? HAHAHAHAHAHA !! I can hardly wait for your next post Kelly !!

  32. margaret says:

    So good to have our Queen back!!! Great article and don’ you just love the way willnut got shot down by Deanna? I wanted to give Abe a hug. Great day for our Juan.. You sound as though you are feeling better. I hope so..

  33. Mama Via says:

    Has anyone heard from our Kelly this morning? Is she feeling okay?

  34. TBrehmer says:

    Nope, haven’t heard anything, been waiting in earnest for an email to her latest post, nothing as of yet! Hope she is OK! Maybe just getting a late start!

    • TBrehmer says:

      Hi Kelly, I knew you would not disappoint, so glad you are ok, you are ok, right? Anyway looking forward to your take on the doins in court yesterday, ( my Grammy used that term “doins” whenever there was some entertaining to be had, LOL) Waiting impatiently, JK!!! =D

  35. Lacey says:

    Hey Kelly don’t ever apologize for running late. just glad your ok ♥

  36. Connie Rust says:

    Ok I’m officially worried…..

  37. Connie Rust says:

    Due to a comment by one of the JMPS facebook page admins I will no longer follow that page for updates. Kelly I hope ur ok!

    • reallybigmeandog says:

      Connie: I’m fine. Working on the blog right now. Thanks so much for asking. Please don’t not follow stuff because of me.

      • Connie Rust says:

        Kelly I followed that page long before I found your blog so no worries. I just didn’t like a comment that was made. I really was just worried about you! I can suffer with the blg withdrawals for awhile longer as long as I know u’r ok.

    • renaes24 says:

      Care to share?

    • reallybigmeandog says:

      Connie that is really sweet thank you. If you ever need to get me right away just email me. I have an alert on the computer when I get an email. It makes a really big noise.

  38. Brandy says:

    Connie, what was the comment, would love to know!

    • Connie Rust says:

      I can’t cut/paste it but if u look at the main page about 5 hours ago there is a link by JMPS admin to CB’s blog right under a link to Kelly’s blog from yesterday. A couple of the admin’s comments really don’t sit right with me. In all fairness they did say they would post links to both blogs and let readers decide what to read (right thing to do), but the comments tell me they are not so neutral. I’m not trying to bad mouth anyone and I have enjoyed that page since the first trial…..but I’m choosing not to continue.

    • Samantha says:

      They have been very diplomatic about it in general, praising both writers and linking to both blogs, not taking sides and trying to keep the peace….but made a comment in a discussion thread about being “informed of a scam” and spoke of the article that had “saved many people from being scammed” (comments under link to the Examiner)

  39. Connie Rust says:

    Samantha….that’s the one.

  40. Samantha says:

    Dear Kelly,
    There is a lot of love out there for you. don’t be distracted by hate. Remember what MLK said, Hate cannot drive out hate, only Love can do that. Blog me baby! I miss you!
