Although there is apparently no gag order in this case, judges usually caution the parties to a trial to avoid "trying the case in the media." The self-identified family members of the victim are doing exactly that here, and one wonders why. The "intelligence" of the jury is what will make the determination in this case, that is unless all this invective results in the judge declaring a mistrial.
BTW, based on a couple photos of the defendant, Garriston, I'd say he isn't a very sympathetic figure. He'd be well advised to get a haircut and shed that middle-aged Fabio look he's affecting.
