Before she became a mother Samira always wanted to have a career as a singer, and she was a good singer.”

If it was less than an hour or even two hours or three hours, my client was in Panama City. He wasn’t here. He couldn’t have hit her in the face. He couldn’t have hit her with some ridiculous golf club, and he darn sure couldn’t have thrown her in the pool.”

State and medical examiners were not able to give a specific time of death.
