San Joaquin County prosecutors revealed that the accused murderer of 8-year old Sandra Cantu may also be facing special circumstance charges, bringing the death penalty into play. Melissa Huckaby may also face charges of rape with a foreign object, lewd and lascivious conduct with a child and murder in the course of a kidnapping.
So much for the specifics of Sandra's death not being revealed until trial.
I smell a change of venue. San Joaquin County has a relatively small potential jury pool.
