Why would they try these 2 cases together? The only thing they have in common is the one who is accused of doing it. They are so far apart from each other that the jurors may get confused on the evidence they are given.

Would this have an affect on the sentencing? I understand your view cp resident and this (cp residents point) doesnt need to happen. I just hope whoever is convicted, is the one who did it.

I think that by trying them together....they can go for the death penalty. By trying them together the jury can know about both cases. If tried separately, the Pate jury couldn't convict on knowing of the Shunick case b/c her death hadn't happened yet, so they couldn't even bring up her name. Then if he's found not guilty on the Pate case, when they try him for the shunick case they can't bring up the Pate case.
