4 having been previously duly sworn to speak the truth, the whole
5 truth and nothing but the truth, then testified as follows:
6 REDIRECT EXAMINATION
7 BY MR. FOGLEMAN:
8 Q. I failed to ask you a question. When you were here in West
9 Memphis participating in the execution of the search warrants,
10 did you go in the trailer of Jason Baldwin?
11 A. Yes.
12 Q. Describe for the jury the defendant's room, what you
13 observed there?
14 MR. STIDHAM: Your Honor, we object. May we
15 approach the bench?
16 (THE FOLLOWING CONFERENCE WAS HELD AT THE BENCH
17 OUT OF THE HEARING OF THE JURY)
18 MR. STIDHAM: What relevance could that possibly
20 THE COURT: I don't know.
21 MR. FOGLEMAN: Your Honor, it goes to that cult
22 stuff. He had all kinds of paintings on the wall.
23 Things of skulls and daggers and --
24 THE COURT: In thinking about the cult stuff I

2 motivation. And all the facts and circumstances of
3 the other event might have been admissible to
4 establish motive and to the extent that -- what detail

9 was full of pictures and magazines she interpreted to
10 be satanic type.
11 MR. CROW: Judge --
12 MR. FOGLEMAN: She's not going to make an
14 MR. CROW: Okay.
15 MR. STIDHAM: It may be relevant against Jason,
16 but it is certainly not relevant against Mr.
18 MR. CROW: We object to, for one thing, showing
19 anything about Mr. Misskelley going to some kind of
20 cult activity.
21 THE COURT: The cult activities in my opinion are
22 admissible going to possible motivation, intent.
23 MR. CROW: Nothing in the statement says anything
24 about --
25 MR. STIDHAM: No relevancy.
1 THE COURT: If it is Jessie Misskelley's
2 apartment, I'm going to let her describe it. If it is
3 the other two boys, let's let it go.
