Bulletin: Larry Swearingen; Death penalty case; Battle of Experts continues. Houston Community Newspapers.

STORY: "Battle of experts continues at Larry Swearingen hearing," by reporter Howard Roden published earlier today by Houston Community Newspapers.

GIST: "With the hearing in its second week, attorneys for the defense and prosecution spent the day attempting to poke holes in the testimony of forensic experts to determine the most reasonable time of Trotter’s death. Swearingen claims he could not have murdered Trotter because he was in the Montgomery County Jail starting Dec. 11, 1998.........The hearing is expected to conclude today."



I am monitoring this case. Keep your eye on the Charles Smith Blog for reports on developments.

The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
