The first remand was successful in that the judge ordered the prosecutor to resubmit the evidence to a new grand jury with new instructions for their consideration. That new grand jury reindicted Stuart for second degree murder and drive by shooting.
The transcripts of that grand jury (PDF) hearing were released and the judge's instructions appear to have been ignored, the police officer who testified last time literally lies under oath to the jury this time (and last time too) and the prosecutor steers the jury away from questions they lawfully demand to get that reindictment. Amazing to anyone who doesn't know that they will get away with it. This ain't Hollywood. It is the real world and how you can expect to be treated if you get arrested.
The autopsy report (PDF) is brought up in the grand jury testimony so I will finally include it here.
A SIDE NOTE:
If anyone knows of a place where John can stay when he gets out before the beginning of next year, or of a job -- even a spot or temp job -- please contact me or Cindy Cantrell. John may be found innocent, but he has been rendered penniless now, without a home or source of income and he will need to get started on getting his life back together soon during the holidays. We need to plan for this contingency now rather than later. If anyone has any ideas let us know. Obviously, donations are still sought right now to keep John fed in jail, and your postcards addressed to John at the prison still bring hope to a dejected man.
