Brief Competency Trial Update

Here's the update in brief:

Today's discussion centered around trail mechanics: there was struggle with potential delays to the trial related to some of the doctor's reports not being available, and possible schedule conflicts with the judge selected to hear the competency trial. These delays appear to have been mitigated over the course of the morning.

The judge will be John Grandsaert, and jury selection will be tomorrow and Wednesday, in all likelyhood. Jury selection process is open to the public, and will take place in Judge Grandsaert's courtroom.

It's not clear what will be happening beyond that, other than that the trial may not actually start with witnesses until the 18th, with ayres' defense witnesses first, and the prosecutor's to follow, probably starting on Thursday of next week. Potentially the jury will then deliberate the following week, if things go roughly along this plan.
