Nelson argues the prosecution shouldnt be allowed to invoke the traps at this point, because they decided to split that into a separate (non-murder) charge
Nelson argues there is a double jeopardy bar preventing the prosecution from including Veronica's age in her arguments (Major paraphrase there, much more complex than that, but I think that's the summation)
Nelson: "Obviously VMS was a child and was killed in this tragic event and that fact, that is not in dispute, but our position is thats different from allowing them to affirmatively argue that as a non statutory aggravating circumstance"
@tjq: I don't think I understand your question, ask again?
Judge says "They can consider her death as part of the victim impact evidence"
@tg_kendall: Ah, that is correct. But it is also a simple formality that each crime requires a sentence under the law. The process can't just be skipped.
Judge sides with the people on the objection re slides
@Tia: Judge sided with the people and so they can talk about her age
@tg_kendall: Public defenders
