Thus, the court held that Nicole's half-brother Tommy and were not allowed to speak to her stepmother Nicole. ,, The defense and the prosecution were given every opportunity to make statements in the courtroom, the family did not, '' said attorney Richard Korver.

Job Knoester lawyer representing the accused Jos G., responded angrily to the request. ,, The survivors are not a party and only one party may make such a request. ''
