Thirty-ish, black female defendant girlfriend:

"[blah blah blah, etc.]"


"And what do you have to say, sir?"

Thirty-ish, black male co-defendant boyfriend:

"I wants to _recur_ with what she say, your honor."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
