@Marti: the judge is ruling on objections from yesterday. Also important to note that he said the rules are just different here at this phase
Judge repeats now that he is trying to protect the fairness by working to ensure the jury makes a reasoned moral judgement and not an emotional snap judgement
"The people are not allowed to present such evidence that is so inflammatory that it will overcome the jurors and render the proceedings unfair"
Brady objecting to statements about the victim's plans for the future
Judge will have to review the citations provided by both sides in response to the last objection
Judge says he'll take a break and consider
TM asking for chance to make offer of proof regarding the 2nd testimonies for certain victims
Also, TM says she is worried there wouldn't be enough witnesses here today, because others have to travel from out of state
TM says she is requesting 16 total witnesses (That means we are missing one from our list built based on the objections yesterday)
@Coco: Human rights are not lost because of a conviction.
TM says she plans for Larimer's mother to testify about his life and his sister to testify about the siblings.
For Ashley Moser would talk about her daughter's life. The grandfather would speak only about Veronica's kindergarten graduation
Tom Sullivan will testify about his son's life. Widow will testify about their relationship
Wingo's ex will talk about their children, her mother will talk about her life
Those last notes were from TM's offer of proof regarding these witnesses
Brady asserts that "the best practice would be to call one witness" for each victim
Samour says that he is going to let TM proceed, given that he didn't tell her sooner, but he is reserving the right to stop her
Judge reminds everyone he still needs to have a sentencing hearing on the other counts, any witnesses who don't testify now will be allowed to speak during that hearing
Judge says "it'll take however long it takes" about that final sentencing hearing
