    You're knowing the victim has caused a cessation in my jibes. :(

    He could easily plead not guilty due to a number of reasons. One of them as discussed in the article is on grounds of mental illness. Another example (perhaps not applying in this case) would be pleady not guilty to murder on grounds that it was in self-defence. Being caught red-handed doesn't tell the whole story - that's what a fair trial is there for. To elicit all the facts. It's often very easy to get caught up in the emotion - I have no idea what it would be like for you to know the victim. It must be horrible :(.

    It's pretty wild, everyone at work is in awe.

    Yeah I know about the not guilty plea. Alledgedly the beating with the bat wasn't good enough, so the accussed went back into the house to grab the machete.
