Yarmolenko Murder Trial

Opening statements were made today in the trial of Mark Carver for the murder of Ira Yarmolenko. Jury selection was yesterday. Unfortunately, I am very busy at work so I will not be able to attend.

I hope they have the right guy. According to his defense attorneys, Carver's DNA was not found on her body. It was found in her car.

The lack of DNA on her body is disturbing. On the other hand, even if Carver is innocent, I don't have a lot of sympathy for him. It's pretty clear to me that he went through Ira's car and then lied to the police about it. That doesn't prove murder though.

I hope they have the right guy. I want justice for Ira.
