Does anyone know if a trial date has been set for those accused of murdering the four members of the Benefield family in 2005?

What is taking so long to get a trial going for murders commited over three years ago! Cleburne cannot be that backed up on trials. This is absolutely ridiculous and so hard on the family.

Judged:

1

And did you ever stop to think that maybe it's taking so long because there is a lot of work to do? If you were the defendant, facing death, would YOU want them to hurry up and get it done? Or would you want everyone to take their time and give you the fairest possible trial, and maybe a chance at not being executed?

What do YOU mean by "hurry up?" It has only been over 3 1/2 years since these horrendous murders! This trial would have been long over by now in most cases. This is by no means a "hurry up" job!

To Tuffy in Baltimore, MD:
I live in Cleburne County and YES it can and does take this long and longer to bring a Murder trial to actual court. And yes we do have a good many court cases and with only 1 court room for our county. Unlike Baltimore,MD we are a very SMALL community with very limited resources at our disposal!!!!!

The trial has been so quiet. No news media and only two write ups in the Anniston Star. It was so publicized at the time of the murders, but the trial has been so quiet. According to the Anniston Star today, one of the defendants was found guilty and the jury recommended, 11-1, for the death penalty. I am not sure how the media has been kept out of this.

What about the murders of Cheri Blair and
Billy Wayne Fordham? Did these people just get forgotten? People who cared about Cheri want
to know why it appears this cold case is just that? Cold. Is ABI not active on this case?
Nove 2004 and no leads, arrests, nada?

yeah, what about the murders of Cheri Blair and Billy Wayne Fordham.
No justice for her and people love this young lady very much. A cold case and why?
