After many weeks of voire dire, the trial of John Couey, accused of murdering 9 year old Jessica Lundsford began Thursday.
Yesterday, the young girl's Father and Grandmother testified. This whole process cannot be anything other than reliving a nightmare for the family of Jessica Lundsford.
We hope the trial proceeds in a fair and orderly fashion, and that this trial marks the beginning of healing and closure for all those devastated by this tragic event.
The posts have been short this week as we have, like many others, been battling for truth and justice and against a persistent upper respiratory infection.
See You In Court.
