The state's opening has been generally ridiculed and no one knows what they are trying to do other than give speculation on GZ state of mind and nothing else. One of the prosecution's witnesses yesterday was much, MUCH better for the defense than they were for the state. I can't believe they even called her to testify.
It's over. I don't see any path for the state to make their charges stick.
State of mind is actually very important in FL 2nd degree murder law.
