THE BIG DAY BEGINS
Monday, March 3.
Hans has taken the witness stand in a packed courtroom.
Everything is two edged. Hans, well prepared for direct examination, has just described a civil, almost normal domestic scene with Nina before she left the house – forever. This almost idyllic account – for example, Nina is quoted as saying that Han can keep his company – can be seen by the jury as Hans’ true account leading to his wife’s inexplicable disappearance or as a fantasy construct, that when analyzed, reveals the motive of a killer.
I’ll defer my comments as the testimony progresses.
