Prosecution highlights inconsistencies in Jason Young
Nike magista high top nike magista obra ii fg with Sgt. Richard Spivey on the stand today, Howard Cummings, Wake County’s chief assistant district attorney, focused on statements Young made about his activities shortly before midnight at a Virginia hotel, about a shirt he wore at his daughter’s third birthday party, months after his wife’s death, and about his financial situation during a 2008 custody battle with his inlaws.Young is accused of murdering his wife, Michelle Young, in the early hours of Nov. 3, 2006. She was 29 and nearly 20 weeks pregnant at the time.Young testified in a June trial that ended with a jury deadlocked 84 for acquittal that he did not kill his wife or have anything to do with her death.The medical software salesman said he was in a Virginia Hampton Inn, about 160 miles from nike magista obra ii fg Raleigh, preparing to make business calls north and west of there.Prosecutors contend he made the trip from the hotel in predawn hours back to his suburban Wake County home, killed his wife, then returned to Virginia for business.Young testified in June 2011 that he checked into the Hampton Inn about an hour before midnight, went to his room on the fourth floor, watched the end of a football game and then went to the nike magista high top lobby in search of a newspaper to check some scores, then later to his car to smoke a cigar.In images captured by security cameras, Spivey pointed nike magista obra ii fg out that Young had a newspaper in his hand while seen at the front desk.Young testified that he propped his hotel door room open so he would not need a key, then propped outer hotel doors open, too, so he could return inside without a key.
Young said it was windy when he smoked his cigar, struggling to keep it lit.Spivey pointed out that it was 34 degrees outside the night, but it was windy with speeds recorded at nearly 20 miles per hour and gusts of 31 miles per hour.Spivey also read testimony from Young that he ceded custody of his daughter Cassidy in late 2008 to his sisterinlaw and motherinlaw, in part, because he did not have the money to keep fighting them in court.But Spivey said a review nike magista high top of several bank, retirement and nike magista high top 401K accounts in Young’s name showed he had access to nearly $60,000 at the time.Spivey also pointed out the differences in two shirts one that prosecutors show him wearing on Nov. 2, 2003, after checking in to theHampton Inn hotel and one that his attorneys showed during his testimony from his daughter’s third birthday party in March 2008.The collars are different, Spivey said, as was the zipper and color.Prosecutors contend investigators never found the shirt he was wearing Nov. 2, 2003, that Young disposed of it after killing his wife.Defense attorneys contend the prosecution’s theory does nike magista obra ii fg not make sense, that Young did not have enough time to commit the violent attack that his wife suffered, incur no injuries and track no blood into his white Ford Explorer nike magista obra ii fg.
