Aiden Fucci’s Murder Trial Has Begun
Aiden Fucci is the only suspect in the murder of his girlfriend. Although the trial for his murder has not yet begun, a statewide campaign is trying to decrease the length of juvenile prison sentences. Fucci could be released after 25 years if his case qualifies for an appeal. However, the charges against him could still result in a life sentence. He could get probation while he is still on the road to recovery.
Fucci will be tried in adult court, as well as the murder charge. The judge has already blocked off two weeks for the trial to start. He will be tried on a charge of first-degree murder. Although he is a juvenile, the court will treat him as an adult during the trial. The death penalty is not an option. The court has already set the date of his final pretrial hearing for Oct. 26.
Fucci’s defense asks for cameras to be blocked during jury selection and to keep autopsy photos out the courtroom. In addition, the defense wants the indictment out of the jury’s view. This is a difficult request considering the seriousness of the case. It is important to remember that the judge will be the judge at the trial. In the meantime, the defense wants to make the case against Aiden Fucci go away.
Fucci’s case is based upon evidence that he was a serial killer, drawing graphic images of mutilated bodies and talking about suicide. Fucci’s girlfriend claimed he told her he wanted to kill someone, but her death has been deemed a suicide attempt. Bailey’s sister, a close friend of the suspect, claimed that the murderer took pictures of mutilated bodies to inspire him.
Bailey and Fucci’s family has marched to the courthouse demanding justice for their daughter. Despite the sham trial, Fucci’s attorney filed a motion for a speedy trial, but the judge has not yet decided whether or not to grant the request. Fucci could be sentenced to an adult prison, where he would be isolated. Fucci will face trial on October 28.
The St. Johns County State Attorney’s Office released discovery material in connection to the investigation into the murder of Tristyn Bailey. Fucci, who was only 15 years old at the time, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of the teen. Bailey had been stabbed 114 time, according to the medical examiner. Fucci also admitted pushing Bailey when she tried to grab his hand. She pushed her to the ground, and she fell. According to police interviews, Fucci told Bailey to “F off.” Fucci then walked off.
A video showing Fucci washing Bailey’s blood appeared online and has since been released by Florida prosecutors. Fucci’s mother, Tristyn Bailey, was last seen alive on May 9 in Jacksonville, Florida. She was at the Durbin Amenity Center, in Durbin Crossing, near Bailey’s home, and was last seen at midnight. Her body was found in the forest, and police upgraded the charge against him to pre-meditated first-degree murder.
