Comment: I see by your reply...

(See in situ)

I see by your reply... haven't really been following the facts in this case. So it makes sense that you don't realize what "taint the jury pool" means in this case. This is a death penalty case and that's the only thing that will be in question at the trial. The evidence is solid as to guilt.

Very likely, in order to avoid the death penalty, he'll plead not guilty by reason of insanity and the defense will try to pin everything on his dead brother. But once the jury sees the video of him putting down his backpack and walking away, I'm pretty sure they'll vote for the death penalty.
