In 2009 this guy was given 5 tickets, all of which were dismissed for failure to prosecute. He requested a non-jury trial on each one. So this guy is not new to the legal system. Why wasn't he held back in 2009 for the murder??????

Well all I can say is IT'S ABOUT TIME! And yes, thanks to the State Police for doing what the local yokels seem unable to do...find their butts with both hands. So we are now down to what....seven unsolved murders instead of 8?

Is he going to kangaroo court with judge quintero?
If so, he'll probably get probation and community service for murder.

If Rachel was shot in the back of the head with a high-powered rifle ....

how could it be self-defense?

If she was attacking him, why not use the rifle as a striking instrument?

There are way too many questions.

Too bad that I cannot be on the jury.

I was on a jury panel for a murder case under Judge Quintero, and that's exactly what the murder got was probation and community service. Hope this one doesn't turn out the same as they usually do in Quintero's court.

I have also thought since the beginning that both of these were somehow involved.. I was never contacted by police even though they were given my info to contact me.
