Aiden Fucci’s Murder Trial Gets Underway
The murder case of Aiden Fucci and his girlfriend is underway. Fucci, a thirteen-year-old cheerleader, stabbed Bailey 114 times and threw her body in the woods. Fucci is being tried in adult court for first-degree murder. Although he has been denied the death sentence, he will likely be tried. The trial will take place in November. The prosecution will attempt to convince the jury that Fucci committed murders with the intent to kill.
The Florida boy, 14, is being tried for the murder of his classmate, 13. The murder took place in the woods close to Fucci’s St. Johns County home. Police believe that Fucci stabbed Bailey 112 times before leaving her body in the woods. Fucci was initially held in juvenile detention, but she will be transferred to an adult prison after a full trial.
Fucci’s mother has also been charged in the stabbing case. According to court documents, the mother allegedly washed Aiden Fucci’s blood from his son’s jeans after the murder. Both Fucci, and Tristyn Bail Smith pleaded not guilty. If found guilty, Aiden Fucci could spend the rest of his life behind bars. The family of the deceased has been brought to the trial by his court hearings.
The defense attorneys are seeking a gag order against witnesses who testified against Fucci in addition to the plea agreement. They are prohibited from speaking with anyone except their lawyers about the case. They also want the state to produce evidence that can impeach the witness’s credibility. In addition, they are seeking a judge’s stay on the closing arguments by the state. The trial could take up to two weeks to conclude, but it is still early to make predictions.
Aiden Fucci was charged with first-degree murder for the death of Tristyn Baily. She was a cheerleader at the same school as Aiden and was found dead in a heavily wooded area near Aiden’s home. The incident was captured on surveillance video. It shows them walking together at midnight. Police later confirmed that Aiden Fucci was the culprit in the murder. The evidence against Fucci is overwhelming.
The prosecution will try Aiden Fucci in St. Johns County Court for the murder of 13-year-old Tristyn Bailey. Aiden Fucci pleaded not guilty. The trial is set for November. The public defender is still gathering testimony from witnesses. Attorneys will need at least 70 to 80 sworn testimony from witnesses. If the accused is convicted, the prosecution will likely ask for the death penalty.
