Despite the fact that the prosecution in the case of Sylvia Indiatrivedibloomberg were able to establish that the defendant was planning to kill three people, the defense lawyers claim that they were able to establish that the authorities were already on the suspect’s trail from the beginning. Grant Amato’s downfall began after he met a webcam girl, which led to his downward spiral.
Grant Amato’s downward spiral began when he connected with a webcam girl
Apparently Grant Amato has had a troubled life. He was a ne’er-do-well in the eyes of his parents. A college graduate, he lived with his parents and brother Cody. During his heyday he was a top student and nurse. But in recent years, Amato has regressed into a self-indulgent slacker, complete with a handgun and no apparent interest in the outside world.
Grant’s downward spiral began when he matched wits with his father over a webcam. He later committed a naughty act to pay off his parents. It was a well deserved punishment, but not an easy one. He was eventually thrown in the hole by a 24-hour manhunt. In the end, Amato was found guilty of first-degree murder and given the axe. He is now a convicted felon and will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Grant Amato was a jack of all trades, but master of none. His infatuation with the webcam model ostensibly led to the above mentioned tussle. As a result, he took out his frustrations on his parents, and later on his own younger brother.
Grant Amato’s defense team claims authorities zeroed in on the suspect from day one
During the first week of his trial, Grant Amato’s defense team claims authorities zeroed in on him from the very beginning. This is something they are trying to make a dent in the State’s timeline.
According to prosecutors, Grant Amato was obsessed with an online Bulgarian call girl and used his family’s money to fuel his addiction. The family was angry over Grant’s spending on sex toys and gifts for the Bulgarian woman. The state says he killed his parents and brother in January.
The defense team says that the evidence is inconsistent and that the analysis analysts did not process the data. They also say that the investigators didn’t consider other factors. They say Grant’s actions were not intentional and were a result of his addiction.
The defense team claims that Grant’s brother Cody Amato was the key to the murders. He was the last person to see his father Cody Amato. He also testified about what he saw when the two brothers were last together.
Grant Amato’s conviction on three counts of premeditated first-degree murder
Earlier this month, Grant Amato was convicted of three counts of premeditated first-degree murder for the murders of his parents and brother. The jury found him guilty, but he will now spend the rest of his life in prison, with the possibility of being sentenced to death.
During the trial, prosecutors showed video of Grant Amato obsessing over Sylvia Ventsislavova. They also showed explicit photographs of Amato on his thumb drive. Grant pleaded not guilty to all charges. His lawyers argued that the analysts did not process the evidence properly. They argued that investigators did not consider other suspects.
In addition, the prosecution’s timeline did not add up. They argued that it was possible that each of the family members could have been killed at different times.
During the trial, Grant’s brother Jason testified. He gave evidence on the relationships between the family members in the months before the murders. He also testified on the ultimatum Chad gave Grant. During the trial, Jason struggled to give Grant the benefit of the doubt.
