((During a closed-door hearing in May, Bramblett's attorneys tried to show Bramblett suffers from delusions.
It started as a conspiracy by the Hodges, Bramblett believes. Ultimately police, even his own lawyers joined in- -by Bramblett's logic.
Blaine and Teresa Hodges were killed in their own home exactly three years ago today- -along with their two children, Winter and Anna Hodges.
The house was set ablaze after the four were killed.
In an audio tape- -recorded after the Hodges were killed, Bramblett told a story about Winter putting on a show for him, "gyrations" he called it.
"What I had suspected for a year," Bramblett says he thought it "was a setup. Blaine was trying to buy himself out of jail by using his daughter as a some type of sexual enticement toward me," Bramblett said on tape.
Psychologist Evan Nelson concluded Hodges suffers from a rare delusional disorder... believing that the Hodges were involved in a conspiracy against him... that Police planted evidence and tried to frame him... that he figures he'll eventually be tried on false evidence.... that his own attorneys are part of the plot to keep him from having his day in court.))

Renee Trump is mad because she knows she'll probably never face her alleged attacker in court.

TAKE SU
Sources who spoke with NEWS 7 question the way Spangler handled the case for other reasons.
Renee Trump did NOT see her attacker because he put a shirt over her face-- however D-N-A evidence identified her attacker as Cory Kast-- which could have easily made this an open and shut case. end su

Collins was facing 20- years in prison for raping a young girl-- but only received a one year sentence. take graphic
Sources tell NEWS 7 Collins had been convicted of raping the girl six years before but Spangler was unable to bring out Collins' past in court because he failed to notify the defense in a timely manner. end graphic
