I e-mailed two Raleigh TV stations and phoned one. I got prompt replies.

All three have stated the judge in the case is not allowing video streaming of the entire trial; no gavel to gavel coverage. The judge only allowed opening statements Monday morning.

I just watched WTVD (Raleigh, NC) live stream of their 5 pm News.

Kelli O'Hara gave an update from the court house in Smithfield, Johnston County, NC re the Jonathan Richardson trial.

Her report was in line with her tweets today.

There were several snippets of the nurse who testified that Richardson said he had to go to his truck.  She ran after him and detained him.   She said she grabbed him by the throat and could have ripped out his esophagus.

She also said she told a LE officer to give her his gun and she would end this right now (with Richardson).   {not verbatim}

I assume WTVD will post an article and the video from the news later.

However, this will probably be on again on the 6 pm News.  Here's a Link to WTVD's "live" news feed:

Doctors, nurses 'feverishly worked' to save tortured 4-year-old

Posted 12:04 p.m. today 2/25/14
Updated 2:44 p.m. today 2/25/14

WRAL - Raleigh, NC





Smithfield, N.C. — Doctors and nurses "feverishly worked" to save the life of 4-year-old Teghan Skiba when her mother's boyfriend took her to the emergency room of Johnston Memorial Hospital more than three years ago, claiming she hit her head while jumping on the bed.

But Dr. Michael Evans, a physician on call July 16, 2010, testified Tuesday in the capital murder trial of Jonathan Douglas Richardson that the child had a faint pulse, strained breathing, dilated eyes and was limp and lifeless.

"The main presentation was that I have a kid here that's been beaten badly, has a head injury and has a bunch of other marks on her, but right now, the problem is the large amount of blood in the brain," Evans said.

Investigator in Teghan Skiba murder trial describes shed where girl was allegedly tortured

Updated at 01:32 PM today

Snipped:

On Wednesday, a crime scene investigator described to the jury every single piece of evidence that she uncovered in the shed, which was littered with trash.

"I observed the interior of the shed to be cluttered with that appeared to an odor of urine and/or feces," Former CSI Investigator Charlotte Fournier said. "There was an air mattress on the floor in the south east corner of the room with a few pillows on top of it. Located on the floor between the chair and treadmill, there was a laptop and a brown extension cord with exposed ends. "

Fournier also said she found underwear - size 14 - with suspected blood, and a piece of tissue inside with suspect blood on it.

Investigator weeps testifying about tortured child's living conditions

WRAL - Raleigh, NC


Posted 10:31 a.m. today - 2/26/14
Updated 8:32 p.m. today - 2/26/14





Smithfield, N.C. — A former crime scene investigator wept Wednesday as she showed a Johnston County jury photos of the tiny, "cluttered and dirty" shed where prosecutors say a man tortured his girlfriend's young daughter for 10 days before she slipped into a coma and died in 2010.

The breakdown prompted the judge presiding over Jonathan Douglas Richardson's capital murder trial to excuse jurors from the courtroom so the investigator, Charlotte Fournier, could regain her composure.

Jury sees graphic evidence in Jonathan Richardson murder trial

Snipped:

Some of the evidence included a lot of blood-stained clothes, guns, knives, and even a camera with pictures and videos taken of Skiba before her death.

Introducing all the evidence is a painstaiking process which takes up a lot of time. It is expected to continue most of the day Thursday and could even go into Friday.

Jury gets closer look at evidence in case of tortured child

Posted 1:35 p.m. today - 2/27/14
Updated 17 minutes ago

WRAL - Raleigh,NC

Smithfield, N.C. — Jurors watched intently – some leaning forward in their seats – Thursday as they saw crime scene video of the 15-foot-by 13-foot shed where Johnston County prosecutors say a Smithfield man physically and sexually abused his girlfriend's 4-year-old daughter before the child died.

Testifying for a second day in Jonathan Douglas Richardson's capital murder trial, Charlotte Fournier, a former crime scene investigator for the Johnston County Sheriff's Department, said she initially seized 196 items from the cluttered and dirty shed where Teghan Skiba spent 10 of her last 13 days alive.

Jonathan Richardson trial - 2/27/14

Post by Ann - Tx on Thu Feb 27, 2014 4:08 pm


Just saw Kelli O'Hara's (WTVD - Raleigh, NC reporter) report on WTVD's 4 pm news via live feed.  I assume it will be posted on WTVD's site later.

Pictures of some of the evidence shown in the video report including the shed and inside of the shed.

Kelli said court resumes tomorrow at 10 a.m.; in an earlier tweet, Kelli tweeted 10:30 a.m.  I guess it really does not matter since this trial is not being "live" streamed.

One, re the updates . . . you are welcome.

Yes, this is a heinous, horrific case. In some ways it reminds me of the Emma Thompson case . . . she was barely 4 years old.

Jonathan Richardson trial - 2/28/14

Post by Ann - Tx on Fri Feb 28, 2014 1:35 pm


As many know by now, the Jonathan Richardson trial is not being live streamed.   The presiding judge is not allowing it.

Yesterday Kelli O'Hara (see below) tweeted that the judge will allow a "live" stream of Closing Arguments and the Jury Decision.
 So . . . at least we will get to hear/see that.  However, it is weeks away.  The trial is expected to last up to 6 weeks.

For now, you can follow the trial with Kelli who is tweeting and is in the court room.  Also, Kelli has usually been doing a "live" report outside the court house in Smithfield, NC at 4 and sometimes 5 p.m. EST.  It is usually posted later in the evening on WTVD's website and I've been posting links to their articles & videos.

Kelli has tweeted today.  Some tweets are graphic.

Hospital doctor testifies in Jonathan Richardson murder trial

•By: TWC News Staff  - Time Warner Cable
Raleigh, NC

•  12:23 PM  - 2/28/14




Snipped:

The doctor said the little girl was flown to UNC Hospital as a disaster patient, nearly brain dead and just moments away from death.“Severe, extensive, those do not portray how beaten this child was when I had a first look at her. These scars, these whip marks, these injuries to her skin that were all over her body. It was essentially no part of her body that was spared. It is something that I have never seen in over 25 years,” said Dr. Keith Kocis, UNC pediatric intensive care doctor.

Doctor says he 'nearly vomited' upon seeing tortured 4-year-old Teghan Skiba's body

Updated at 01:22 PM today - 2/28/14

WTVD - Raleigh, NC


SMITHFIELD, N.C. (WTVD) -- A pediatric doctor testifying in the murder trial of Jonathan Richardson on Friday, told the courtroom he "nearly vomited" when he saw 4-year-old Teghan Skiba.


Snipped:

On Friday, Kocis said he "nearly vomited" when he saw the enormous amount of injuries that were inflicted on Skiba. Adding, that he had never seen injuries like that on any child in his 25 years as a doctor.

"We saw this small frail girl who you know from her status she was pale, she was poorly perfused, in shock, those parts ... don't portray how beaten this child was when she ... I had a first look at her," Kocis said. "These scars, these whip marks, these injuries to her skin that were all over her body, I mean there was essentially no part of her body that was spared."

His testimony got pretty graphic at times when he began to detail the extent of the girl's injuries.

Doc: Teghan Skiba had 'enormous number' of injuries
Posted 11:14 a.m. today

" ...In laying out their case, Richardson's lawyers said he lacked experience and parenting skills, and they blame Teghan's death on Richardson's undiagnosed mental problems, his own experiences of being abused as a child and approval from Reyes, his girlfriend, that physically abusing the child was OK....."

_______________________
This logic, as presented by the def's atty, appears to be rather faulty.

1.Every parent is at some time a "first time" parent yet not many "first time" parents have abused a child so severely, sexually molested the child, or beaten the child to death. Nor do parents bite a child...repeatedly. Not even first time parents.

2. Undiagnosed mental problems? Huh? The def has used the excuse he IS bipolar and "little things" set him off...So now we are hearing it is "undiagnosed"? Is this an attempt by an atty to clean up statements the def made to others? I think so.

3. Def stated he had been abused as a child which is why he abused Teghan. Abused children usually go out of their way to NOT hurt others BECAUSE they HAD been abused!

4. Def stated the mother, Reyes, "approved" his abusing the child.
Not relevant. It would not matter if the mother had approved physical abuse of the child it does not compel HIM to violate state and federal laws. In fact, HAD the mother approved of violence to the child AND he was aware of violence to the child, he had a LAWFUL DUTY to notify the local law enforcement, social services, etc.. The fact is he is trying to shift blame AND this points to HIS prior knowledge only compounds his guilt, IMO.

Snipped:


"She had enormous number injuries to her skin that appeared to be inflicted," he said.

Kocis described those injuries and his attempts to save her life. He said he knew even if his team could save her life, Teghan, who had a blood clot in her brain, would have suffered severe impairments.

Where was CPS? Do they no longer exist? Why do we pay their salaries with our tax dollars and they do nothing to protect children. The whole damn system needs over hauls. These outside agencies need to be eliminated. The government should hire and be in control of these workers.

That's not to say that things like this wont happen again and again, we have sick people in this world and they will find every excuse in the book when they get caught. I don't even want to imagine all the children out here that get abused and it is never discovered because the children survive the abuse.

These sick SOB's need to be put away for ever and never be allowed to get those children (who do survive) back.

I do not believe in second chances when it come to harming a child.
