New Excerpt


  It was a Monday Morning that mid date in November.   Mr. Charles Mason, District 
attorney for the city of Raleigh in the state of North Carolina was informed he would be 
taking the case to court beginning November 15, 2010.   He was relieved to begin on 
this case.   Since the murder investigation had begun in May, all of the case was still  not 
processed and ready for trial until late September. Since the criminal investigation did 
not fully wrap up until late August.  There were many factors that were involved in this 
investigation.  However it was mostly due in part to the long psychiatric evaluations 
done to Mrs. Sadie Martin Carlyle and the fact that Dante’s parents fought to make sure 
the trial was not moved to Atlanta Georgia were Sadie was born and raised.   This was 
a very hard time for the Carlyle’s.   They were shocked at all that had transpired since 
their only son’s death.  They both felt that the supposed victim and their former daughter 
in law was not being truthful and that she had something to hide.   “  Our son is not the 
monster that the media had  portrayed him to be. ”  They both stated time and time 
again, after it was reported that Dante Carlyle a very successful attorney was beating 
his wife and she in turn had to defend herself and shot him in cold blood.   It was Mr. 
Mason’s job to prove to the jury that murder by any means was wrong.  He did receive 
all the physical and psychological exams that were done to Ms. Carlyle, however he 
also had all the information on how Dante was shot.  He could not ignore the 9 
mm weapon that was used and the fact he was shot multiple times.   As he looked
over the notes, and starting working away at how he was going to approach this case,  
he began to think of the innocent baby girl that was caught up in this tragic set of 
events.
