December 15, 2021 — The case is now with the jury

All the testimony has been elicited, all the exhibits shown, and all the arguments have been made. The evidentiary part of the trial is now concluded. This morning came the closing arguments for the prosecution, the defense, a rebuttal from the prosecution, and lastly, instructions for the jury from the judge. It all comes down to reasonable doubt for defendant Dineane Ducharme. And, if she is found guilty, to which of the three charges (open murder, conspiracy to commit, and mutilation of a body) and, in the case of murder, degree: first or second.

We wait.

    I suspect there will be a verdict by the end of the day.
