Posted at HTO comments, Oct. 29, 2011: "in the near future", a new site focused on this case. Jill Behrmann
The Arrest and Conviction of John R. Myers II - Myers offered to take a polygraph exam, however that offer was refused.
Due to extensive media coverage of the case, Myers' attorney asked that the trial be moved to the southern end of the state. That request was denied, and it proceeded in Morgan County. Other controversial points concerning the trial were that evidence technician Jason Fajt was called to testify as a witness for the defense about evidence found in Behrman's bedroom, but he was unable to answer any questions as he was not present when Behrman's room was searched. The evidence technician who collected the evidence had moved to another state. Patrick Baker, the attorney representing Myers, opted to present very little in the way of a defense, stating that the State had not proven its case. Concerns also arose over juror conduct during the trial. Jurors were allowed to drink alcoholic beverages, access to cell phones and televisions and conducted themselves in a manner described by one juror as a "fraternity party like" atmosphere. Despite the lack of evidence, the jury returned a guilty verdict in less than one hour. Myers is currently appealing the verdict to the Indiana State Supreme Court.

Opinion by the court of appeals in 2008.
"...a defendant is entitled to a fair trial, not a perfect trial. Concluding the imperfections in the murder trial of John Myers II did not deprive him of a fair trial, we affirm."
