    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

Update: Tara Lynn Grant murder *Husband, Stephen Grant, arraigned and denied bail*

grant.jpgStephen Grant had his first day in court today. He did not speak much, but answered the judge’s questions politely. And, of course, he was denied bail (big suprise, huh?)

“Mr. Grant, I don’t think I need to hear anything further with regard to the issue of bond,” the judge said. “Given the extreme, extreme seriousness of the charges, the nature of the allegations here, the nature of the alleged flight, the court agrees with the people. I’m going to order you held without bond. Do you understand that?”

This afternoon there is a hearing regarding custody of the two Grant children.

A child custody hearing for the Grant children was scheduled for later Tuesday afternoon. (Macomb County Prosecutor Eric) Smith said his office planned to petition the family court to take jurisdiction of the children and terminate Stephen Grant’s parental rights. Smith said the Michigan Department of Human Services recommends that the children live with Tara Grant’s sister, Alicia Standerfer, and her husband at their home in Chillicothe, Ohio.Stephen Grant’s sister, Kelly Utykanski, of Sterling Heights, and her husband also were seeking temporary custody of the children. DHS spokeswoman Maureen Sorbet declined to comment on parental rights in the Grant case, but said a court hearing on the issue was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
