UPDATE: Porco Murder Trial in New York
As I recently blogged about HERE, there are some fascinating legal issues raised in a New York murder trial of a man accused of murdering his father and leaving his mother disfigured*; his father was a New York appellate court clerk.
The trial is currently going on, and you can follow the progress at The Porco Trial Blog. The trial has been delayed on a couple of occasions already due to deaths in the families of Porco's defense team, and one of his attorneys has just undergone heart surgery. Last week the prosecution indicated that it could take as long as 5 weeks for the prosecution to get through its case.
Stay tuned, and I'll update when there's more of specific interest to discuss.
*...edited 8/16/06. I inadvertently originally typed here that he was accused of murdering "his parents" when he was actually only accused of murdering his father, while his mother survived the attack. In response to comments, I am editing the post for accuracy.
