Michigal, the girl is a big liar. She has a myspace account stating that she is 22-years-old.http://www.myspace.com/blondeaeprep
I was at the trial. The prosecutor asked her on the witness stand:
Q: Did you exaggerate when you told your Dad that Mike hit you?
A: Yeah, a little. Giggle...
Q: Are you glad your boyfriend is dead?
A: (she wrinkled up her face - tossed her head side to side then responded by shrugging her shoulders)
During closing arguments the Prosecutor says that a stranger who heard the case would have more remorse than what Megan has and even thought it was funny.
The clothing David Fugate was wearing was laid out on the floor during his testimony. It showed NO blood whatsoever. That sort of shoots down his theory that Mike jumped him and while he was atop of him he shot him.
After the verdict was reached (took less than 3-hours), victim impact statements were read.
During Fugate's mitigating impact statements from his wife, Jeanne she states that he has been the best husband and father.
Prosecutor grabbed a police report from 2008 and had her verify it was her handwriting. The Prosecutor then asked her if she called the police on her husband and wrote the statement 'he told her that if he was drunk he would shoot her'.
Jeanne denied it, but there it is in black and white. Prosecutor asked if he had to go to the hospital that night? She said, no. Prosecutor paged through report and said 'Fugate was taken to hospital when police arrived' adding, that's what he did the night he murdered Michael when the police came then too.
See, after this guy blew Michael's brains out all over the street and the police came, he faked a heart attack and went to the hospital, but they did not keep him.
The formal sentencing is set for June 28.
I wish they would charge the daughter with something.
As a matter of fact they have such a wonderful family and they all wore religious crosses during the trial. After verdict was read, the family began crying, screaming and cussing at people.
They have another daughter and both are in the juvenile system.
This is a case where the father was angry that he could not control his daughter and they took it out on this young man.
Prosecutor did an excellent job and thanks to the police and crime scene personnel they were able to present a convincing case despite all the lies that were told and the high profile attorneys (3-of them)
