    Judge Jay Ryan Adleman stated in his ruling Tuesday that he had an issue with prosecutors' "clear mishandling of the potentially exculpatory Silent Witness records."
    The judge also ordered that Silent Witness disclose the identity of an informant who called them saying they spotted Kiera Bergman at the Indigo Creek Apartments on Aug. 13, 2018, at 5:15 p.m., four days after she was reported missing.

    Phoenix police and Maricopa County prosecutors were ordered to disclose all reports and contacts with the informant.
    A judge dismissed the case without prejudice in early 2020, saying that prosecutors mishandled Silent Witness records. Dismissing a case without prejudice allows prosecutors to refile charges if they decide to do so.

    The Maricopa County Attorney's Office confirmed to The Republic on Friday morning that the case was handed over to Pinal County, but said it could not comment further on pending prosecution.

    The Pinal County Attorney's Office said it agreed to take on the case, but referred The Republic to Maricopa County for further details as to why it was moved.
    What's going on here? Sounds like prosecutorial misconduct/Brady violation. Not good.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.
