Final Days: Cheshire Murder Trial Wraps Up, Heads To Jury

Very well done commentary piece covering the entire Hayes trial by Thomas Scheffey of the Connecticut Law Tribune. As I mentioned in an earlier Post, I had the good fortune of sitting next to Mr. Scheffey one day of the trial, on the day that William Petit was giving his testimony.

When I saw Scheffey's old school pad of paper and pen, and him diligently jotting down testimony and notes, ( while just about every other reporter was pecking and tweeting at laptops, Netbooks and the like) that he would be a writer of some reckoning. Indeed he is.
He is great at capturing nuance within the courtroom and also letting his own humnaity peek out through his almost prose-like words.
