My bet is there will be two more that stand trial for the crime. Melissa and Tracy's cases just have not advanced to the same point as Johnny Austin and Henry Rice, at least not yet. Just wait and see at their next court appearance. They'll be in the same status and Baggett may be in the worst situation of the four. Remember she has that little piece of extra baggage called "1st degree murder" hanging in the background.

I may be wrong, but I don't think you can do that. I believe you may be able to wave arraignment, but not the preliminary hearing. That is unless you prematurely enter a guilty plea or an Alford plea.

I'm wrong...you're right. Darn it, you're always right.

"File received from Associate Circuit Judge John Bloodworth after defendant waived her preliminary hearing."

I didn't know you could do that........

Yep, the trials are public. These may be crowded since there has been so much publicity. And then you always take the chance of getting there, waiting and it gets postponed or delayed. But you can go sit in the court room.

I hope if they are guilty, that they all get prosecuted. I hope they don't let anyone off because they talked on the others. If they were all there then they knew about it all this time and didn't say anything until arrested.

It is our business when we live in a town where murderers are still reeking havoc, and has taught his son to be the exact same way. He was egging the girls to fight on a video on facebook, just like daddy austin was egging the girls to fight waaay back then, I read the story in the paper, I hope justice is swift! But I am guessing they will have to file for a motion to change of venue, cause a jury here will surely make them swing.
