Saipov Trial Day 3 Has Argentine Victims Now 5 Day Break as 1st US Case Moves Quickly

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 11 - Sayfullo Saipov is now in a trial that may result in the death penalty for killing eight people with a van along the West Side Highway.

  On May 4, 2022 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon S. Broderick held a conference on the case and Inner City Press live tweet it...

On January 10, 2023, witnesses from families run down by Saipov testified, with interpreters, and the day ended with a video of Home Depot. One juror wants to ask questions about Saipov' driver's license, another if he is an alternate. Inner City Press was there, thread here:

On Day 3, there were more victims, including from Argentina - and now a five day break, as the US case, or first part of the case, is moving quickly. Inner City Press live tweeted thread here

OK - Death penalty trial in US v. Sayfullo Saipov continues with Martin Marro on the stand, grew up in Argentina - trial is racing along, at least the guilt phase.

Assistant US Attorney: Were you hurt?

Marro: Yes. My head and ribs and elsewhere.

AUSA: Let's turn to October 31, 2017. What did you do? Marro: I took the subway and met my friends. We went biking....

They're back after break. Witness: Ten of us came to New York from Argentina to celebrate. But five of us never came home. [Names them]

Now in Saipov death penalty trial, witness authenticates Gov't Exhibit 225, showing twisted bicycle carnage and the West Side Highway. [We hoping to obtain and publish some of the exhibits in this case]

 Next witness  is Mr. Zhang, who started working at Stuyvesant High School in 2015.

 Assistant US Attorney: Were you working on the afternoon of Oct 31, 2017? Zhang: Yes. I was looking for the Citibike station after work.

AUSA: Did you take one? Zhang: I was going to ride home on the bike path. I saw the truck, going very fast... I saw a body, that was not moving. I did not go closer. I was about 15 yards away.

Next witness is FBI Crisis Management Squad member Jessica Huckemeyer. AUSA lays groundwork, then reads a GX, stipulation about deceased victims and evidence. GX 3 IDs where law enforcement found the decedents...
