Kendall Coffey spoke with Heather Hansen from the Law & Crime Network about the Adam Matos murder case. 32-year-old Adam Matos has been accused of quadruple murder. Matos’ ex- girlfriend, her parents, and her new boyfriend were found stacked on top of each other less than a mile away from their Hudson, FL home.
Heather is shocked that the defense attorneys haven’t questioned many of the witnesses, even under circumstances where it would be appropriate for them to cross examine. Coffey believes the defense team recognizes how brutally the victims were murdered and with the overwhelming amount of evidence, there’s not much they can do. They expect the defendant to be found guilty of all charges. The most they are hopeful for is for some of the jurors to be against Matos being sentenced to death. Kendall adds, that in very difficult capital murder cases, it’s a huge win for the defense team when the client is sentenced to life in prison as opposed to the death penalty. In some cases, this is the best they can do.
