Murder trial for son of US judge in Puerto Rico begins.


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico –  The son of a U.S. federal court judge is going on trial in Puerto Rico, charged with the first-degree murder of his wife.

Pablo Casellas Toro appeared in court Wednesday as jury selection began.

Casellas is accused of shooting Carmen Paredes Cintron on July 14 at their home in the upscale San Juan suburb of Guaynabo.

He also is charged with destroying evidence, making a false report and weapons violations.

The 47-year-old insurance broker has denied killing his wife, saying he came home to find her dead and an unknown man jumping over a fence.

 He says he shot at the man but missed.

Casellas is the son of U.S. District Court Judge Salvador Casellas, a former Puerto Rico treasury secretary who was appointed to the federal bench in 1994.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
