Titus & Ryan ask for their trial to be postponed

The Associated Press is reporting:

Lawyers for professional bodybuilders Craig Titus and Kelly Ryan are again asking the Nevada Supreme Court to intervene and postpone their trial in the slaying of their live-in personal assistant.

A Clark County District Court judge says Tuesday the trial will go on as scheduled next Monday in Las Vegas, unless the state high court intervenes.

Titus and Ryan are accused of murder in the death of 28-year-old Melissa James, who according to an indictment was drugged, bound, shocked with a stun gun and strangled before her corpse was found in the trunk of Ryan’s burned-out red Jaguar in December 2005.

In documents filed Friday with the Supreme Court, defense lawyers call the state case a “kitchen sink theory.”

They say the charges aren’t specific enough about who’s accused of doing what to let them mount a defense.

    I don’t know,
    the charges do seem pretty specific to me.
    Sounds like Saggase is having a problem
    setting up a defense.

    I don’t know why he is making this argument before the trial
    even starts. I would have waited in closing arguments or on appeal.
    Why tell the prosecution they are not specific enough before the trial?

  2. Administrator Says:

    This appears to all be part of the process which is necessary for a potential appeal. They must exercise all avenues before, during and after for their client(s).

    That’s right…if you dont bring it up and get it on the record, you cant use it later as an issue on appeal…

    It sounds to me that Saggesse, not the DA, is applying the “kitchen sink theory” …because he doesnt have anything else…

    I have been saying all along that there was a mountain of evidence on these two. The only thing the defense has is the word of KR and CT that they didnt do it. I said that the defense wants something to work with, which KR and CT have not provided. Now they are using these stalling tactics, KR and CT are sweating bullets because it is almost game time and dumb and dumber really do not have a solid defense.

  5. Chainsaw Says:

    Ct might say he was just testing out the taser.
    There might be refutable forensic evidance.
    Its a long shot, but the cause of death
    I don’t belive was ever determined either.
