Call it the law school of hard knocks. Its students are cops and construction workers, paralegals and probation officers, homemakers and schoolteachers. A disenchanted doctor here, a corporate executive there.

Typically, they are 37 years old, work full time and are raising families.

McGrath listened as the prosecutor explained why the jury needs to hear from the young son of slain nurse Kellie O'Sullivan before it determines whether her killer should live or die. To hear how she used to take him to McDonald's, put him to bed.
