I just got an email from the managing editor, Pat Lakey at the Mountain Democrat in answer to the one I sent yesterday to the publisher. The paper will be covering the trial "gavel to gavel" once the jury selection is complete. Mr. (Ms.?) Lakey said in the email that the paper will publish future stories on their website. The directions given to get to the stories is to click on "Local News" and then scroll down to find the stories.
Mr. Lakey also said that their court reporter is saying that the actual trial will start next Tuesday. According to my brother who is planning on attending the trial with Kacie's brother, Pat, the trial will proceed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Mondays and Fridays are apparently for other court proceedings. So, the only thing to do now is wait for jury selection to be finished and then wait for articles in the paper or messages from my brother.
Be sure to read the comment on this post from my brother. Jury selection is done! Opening statements and testimony will start on Tuesday.
