i think that is how Kylr got 2nd degree is that they couldn't prove it met the standards of 1st degree.
I agree. I think it happens in many cases. They have to decide what they think they can prove beyond a doubt to a jury even if they feel it was first degree. I wish I understood more of the states and places and cases where they can give the option of the jury picking 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. or all where other states and cases, one never sees that.

I think in Leila's case, he had an intent getting her down there, not sure if the intent was murder unless something went wrong, but then or even then it can still be premeditated within minutes or a day. I think the likely intents were never paying for her truck and/or keeping her and/or sex intent with her. He likely knew he had a young woman on her own with her child coming to a state she had no one/no support system, etc. What her beliefs or intent was, or what he told her, it is hard to know.

Does anyone what court he has been charged in? I can't find any current charges listed in Broward County for him. If anyone knows please advise, thank you!
No idea. Miramar PD initially had this case and then it went to Hollywood PD which is Broward County. It was odd to me though that it said Hollywood PD charged him rather than the Broward County SD. Could it be a state thing that the City PD charged him and then records/charges will transfer to Broward and the DA and the records are not in their system yet but they got the news out?
