We don't know for sure, but my brother talked to the prosecutor a few days ago and though he has not concrete proof, he said his gut instinct is that the trial won't happen in March, but more likely this summer...not that I am surprised...Sarah has been dead for over 2 years now and the trial has been delayed like 3 times. At least he is continues to rot in jail (for other assault convictions on other people)...I guess they did try to offer him a plea bargain if he admitted to "manslaughter" but he didn't take it (which I am happy about, obviously!) I guess he is still gonna stick with his lame lie about how my sister "fell down some steps" (not true at all)...will he EVER tell the truth or take responsibility? Probably not. I guess I don't care any way because it wouldn't bring her back. I guess the delay might have to do with the defense still needing time to complete tests on what exactly caused her death (I can tell them..duh! It was the fact that SOMEHOW she ended up with a severe brain injury to the right side of her head and her brain stem herniated)...I'm sure the defense is probably going to try to convince people that this was manslaughter...yea, he beat the crap out of her but it isn't his fault that she ended up dying from it. Gosh, golly...I guess he didn't mean to hurt her THAT BAD. Whatever. Sorry..It angers me! Manslaughter in Hawaii is 10-20 years, I think...then again he is also charged with 1st degree sexual assault (which they will try to make look like consensual sex, I'm sure), violation of a restraining order and kidnapping (he forced his way into her car as she was trying to get away from him)...*sigh*..I just want this to be over with.
