This was pretty much an experiment to see how much information I could blog from the courtroom where a hearing was held this morning in the Manling Williams case using my Palm.
The Treo’s browser doesn’t like the blog interface, so I posted into the comments, which you can read below.
As soon as court opened, the bailiff advised that all cellphones and pagers must be turned completely off — not just silenced. So, I guess you could say the experiment didn’t work completely.
In any event, the hearing, which was a prelim to the real prelim, was fairly uneventful….
As you might know Man-ling (or manling, or Man-Ling) is accused of killing her husband Neal and suffocating their two children, Ian and Devon in August at the couple’s Rowland Heights apartment.
Neal’s mother, his godmother and sister attended the hearing as did Man-ling’s mother, father and a woman who appeared to be her sister.
Additionally, Nicole Lei, a reporter with the Sing Tao Newspapers attended the hearing.
I’ll have more on the hearing later. Ultimately Judge Robert Martinez set a Jan. 28 prelim date, which could last about a day.
