When Clayton A. Church of rural Coventry, Conn., testified at Randy Steven Kraft's preliminary hearing, he thought a jury would decide soon whether Kraft had killed 16 young men, including Church's son. That was five years ago. "This trial is like a cloud hanging over our heads," Church said of his family. "We kept thinking it would finally happen. Then we'd wait till the next year, and the next."
