Title: Devvra

This is rediculous !  This Judge must not have children or even family .. Your telling us the from Sept. 7, 2010, to now the Defence hasn’t had time to prepare , and now they got another yr to get it done.. No wonder America is going down the tubes. This case is one of the most brutal Murders in AZ. I think it’s time for Someone to step in and get this case taken care of. The family of Devvra deserve this. Devvra Deserves this. If it were were the Judges daughter , do you think it would have gone on this long…. I think NOT !   This is a travisty . I’m appaulled at the justice system. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
