    October apparently, who knows what will happen then though? This thing could go on forever and it doesn't look to be a slam dunk to me either.

    I'd suggest it will be a slam dunk.

    People very close to the incident are well briefed and very confident. Given their legal backgrounds, they would have an eye and ear for what it takes for a conviction.

    Well, that's good news then. Maybe he'll plead guilty in October, try and do some sort of deal for a chance at parole and tell the Spiers where their daughter is.

    Francis John Wark goes to trial on 9th of October.

    I believe he lived in Mosman Park also. Mosman Park is like a magnet for murderers and criminal activity. Glyde st was central to a number of murders.

    Another Mosman Park drug tyrant?

    The trial of a man accused of murdering missing teenager Hayley Dodd will hear evidence about his past rape conviction after a decision in the Supreme Court in Perth.
    Francis John Wark, 61, has pleaded not guilty to murdering 17-year-old Hayley Dodd, whose disappearance remains one of WA's most infamous cold cases.
    She was last seen in 1999 walking along a road near Badgingarra in the Wheatbelt.

    Made a phone call at the corner Brand and NW rd roadhouse pay phone before walking up North West road, vanishing. Walks past Dodd st, kapoof!

    Criminal trial by judge alone (p12) [Western Australia]
    http://www.lrc.justice.wa.gov.au/_files/ch01-jurors.pdf

    Disclosure/Committal Hearing for Perth ...
    http://www.magistratescourt.wa.gov.au/_files/practice_direction_2_2008.pdf

    The State Director of Public Prosecutions acts as prosecutor in the Magistrates Court Stirling Gardens but is not responsible for disclosure under s 42(5) of the Criminal Procedure Act 2004

    The responsibility for disclosure prior to the disclosure/committal hearing remains with the investigating officers who commence each prosecution.

    The establishment of the Magistrates Court Stirling Gardens expedites the committal and hearing of criminal cases in the Supreme Court. It effects a system of individual case management of each matter from start to finish. To this end, the parties are encouraged to engage in voluntary case conferencing at a very early stage notwithstanding the lack of full prosecution disclosure.

    Sounds like Mr Edwards has pleaded to some of the charges, or am I reading too much into it?

    "Mr Edwards is yet to plead to all of the charges against him"

    Could be taken two ways but I think its just precise writing ie instead of leaving doubt ''Mr Edwards is yet to plead to the charges against him'' . Seems slightly pedantic to add 'all' unless there are whispers he is thinking of pleading to some??

    Someone posted something late one night about one and not the other. I don't believe anything I read on the net anymore.

    If there is a forensic link aka the rope to say 3 crimes, how does anyone plead to one crime and not be done for another?

    I'm going to speculate the clothes line speculated used in the crimes came from Kimono theft. That would however, mean the line was kept somewhere and brought out on each occasion.

    The article appeared to be lacking 'clarity'.

    While this is not an answer in this court case; I would think you would need a very convincing lawyer to explain it away.

    Clarity is something that can be gained after the event. ie the papers/journos are guessing as much as we are

    That's interesting, I didn't even pick it up. Was saying only a few days ago, with limited knowledge of the evidence against, I could see a scenario where he may try to do a deal, plead to the two lesser charges KK and Huntingdale in exchange for dropping the murder charges.

    His biggest problem with that is 'similar fact' evidence ie the prosecution can point to each one as a link. Its why I suggested early he may want to knock each one off individually (court case not people :D ). By excluding other charges and focusing on the KK rape he may be found not guilty. Take away the KK assault and the Claremont link becomes weaker.

    The break-in has its issues ,as Dan has pointed out, of the kimono and links thereafter. It will be interesting to see how it is played out

    Fat ****** chance of that. The longer waiting the plea, the less chance of a deal.

    Remember the cases are 'forensically' linked. If you did one, you have done the others. Im going to speculate Kimono clothes line used in at least two the crimes.

    Now that there is a no body, no parole law in WA, once conviction has happened, then out come more charges, then oops, throw away the key.

    Baby steps...
