@Tara: Replay reel from opening statements
Originally-scheduled start time for court was 9am so we are on standby for things to resume anytime now
@debitwo: We'll keep an eye on it for ya
@Suzanne: That's what the judge said
Still awaiting court to resume for jury instructions. We're going to transition to review reel of the investigators who've worked on the case.
Counts: 24x murder (2 types) and 140x attempted murder (2 types) and 1 count of possession of incendiary devices.
165 total charges and judge will read a sample form from each of the 5 types.
Jurors reminded to rely on their own memory and notes, and not be swayed by other jurors who may have taken more notes
Judge asks lawyers to approach
Alright, judge had a question submitted and he says attorneys will address it during their closings
Judge asks staff to distribute instructions and copies of 5 sample verdict forms
Judge reading instruction 1... which explains the jury instructions and also rules for the jury room.
Jurors not allowed to discuss case with anybody, not communicate about the case in any way. Also cannot read about the case
Still on instruction #1 "Do not in any way try to learn about this case or this kind of case outside the courtroom"
