Shannon Crawley during court

As I have not been able to attend this trial (I am in another state!), I am curious about these tapes that were played. They sound fishy to me. Was it verified that it was really Jermeir on the tapes? I doubt it or it would have been mentioned. The voice was just a whisper. I bet his mother could tell if it was him or not. Were phone records verifed that the call was placed between their phones?

Shannon Crawley on the stand today

She is still blaming Jermeir Stroud, talking about him calling her constantly and chasing her in his car around Greensboro. I wonder if she has the phone records to back this up. In the news report, nothing was said to back that up.

Denita Smith

Interestng – the defense is saying that the “real killer” is Denita’s fiance, Jermeir Jackson-Stroud and that he made Shannon go with him to Denita’s apartments. However, I don’t believe the security guard at Campus Crossing Apts. will support this. He stated it was Shannon that he saw leaving the apartments and was in her own vehicle by herself. She is trying to use the ploy about being used by a man and that she had no control over herself or the situation. But if I remember correctly, Jermeir’s alibi was solid, so I don’t think this will fly. And to those who cry about Jermeir cheating on Shannon and he must have done it, you may want to check things closer. Shannon’s relationship with Jermeir was before he and Denita were engaged.

Update: Denita Smith murder *Shannon Crawley released on bail*

crawley_shannon200.jpgDenita Smith’s accused killer, Shannon Crawley was released early Friday morning (between 1:30am – 2am) on bail, $175.000. This does not seem right to me. She is charged with murder. She should not have been given bail. I am really curious to find out how and why this happened. I have always believed that murder was one of those offenses that could not have a bail. If anyone can explain it, please do! Maybe this will give her a chance to get her affairs in order before the trial, which is what I expect will happen since she bailed out. It would not be appropriate if she was going to plead guilty. However, I have not read if there has been a trial date set.
