Terms in this set (23)
Good morning/afternoon. Please introduce yourself to the MOJ.
Hi, my name is Harper Martini
Why are you here today?
My child's fiance Genesis Petrillo...died the morning of their wedding. (look down) I'm being accused of poisoning him.
Ms. Martini just to be clear for the MOJ... Did you poison Genesis Petrillo?
No. Absolutely not. I could never do that Casey. She's been destroyed ever since Gen died, my heart broke watching her testify today. I could never do that to my only child. Never
Okay, let's start from the beginning. What do you do for a living?
(pick ur sad ass up) I own PE in Midlands. I handle the business aspects, so booking events like wine tastings and weddings as well as the logistics of the bed and breakfast. Our head winemaker deals with making the wine, so that looks like, planting and harvesting, pest control, and bottling.
How long have you been doing that?
I opened PE in 2015. It always takes a small business a couple of years to get things going -- that year for us was 2017. I owe that to Casey. My daughter was a big help with putting our business on the map: from the menu at the B&B (?) to the website. Casey really has an eye for business.
Are you two close?
Yes, I mean it was Casey and I against the world after my husband passed away. Casey was only two.(pause) After that, what I wanted more than anything was to be there for Casey. I didn't want her to feel like she was missing something just because it was only the two of us. I wanted her to be happy and that's what I hoped for when Casey got engaged.
Did you get along with his/her fiance?
I wanted to, more than anything. I wanted to get along with the person my daughter was in love with, but we never had the best relationship. But even if we didn't butt heads, I could not trust Genesis.
Why couldn't you trust Genesis?
He really hurt my child. At Casey's 24th birthday party, Genesis made this bet that she couldn't finish a glass of all of our vintages -- that's about 15 glasses of wine. She just kept drinking and drinking and she had to be rushed to the hospital with alcohol poisoning. I knew they drank a lot together, but after watching my baby's stomach get pumped...I never trusted him/her again.
How did you feel when your son/daughter got engaged?
All I want in the world is for Casey to be happy to be happy. What mother doesn't dream of her daughter's/son's wedding day? I promised Casey I would try to make peace with him.
What if you couldn't make peace?
I thought maybe (long pause) I could tell them that I would write them both out of my will. It wasn't my proudest moment, but it was the only thing that I could think of to make Casey rethink her decision.
What were you going to do after you did that?
I don't know. It wasn't really planned out. Ultimately it wasn't what I decided to do.
So, what did you do?
I decided I would try. I promised Casey I would try. At the end of the day I want to see her smile, and if that meant marrying Genesis, then so be it. I decided to make my peace with him.... For Casey
How were you going to make your peace with Genesis?
My plan was to give him the first bottle of our new Cara line. It's special. It's named after the town where Casey's dad's family is from.. I knew it would mean a lot if Casey saw me give it to Genesis.
Why a bottle of wine?
(wistful, nostalgic) My husband gave me one on our wedding day that he had specially brewed. I had told Casey the story so many times and it always made her smile. That's actually one of the big reasons why I started a winery, because it reminded me of him after I lost him. Casey and I wanted her father to have a special place in the festivities.
Did you ever give Genesis that wine?
Yes. I made sure the wedding planner set aside time in front of the entire wedding party for it to be special. I gave a toast and said I hoped our relationship would grow and get better.. Honestly, I felt like my husband would have loved it, and Casey looked so happy.
Did you see Genesis drink the wine?
I did. I saw him/her pour two glasses. I was so excited that s/he seemed to be enjoying it.
What happened afterwards?
(start some energy) I went up to sleep around 10:30. I only got 4 hours of sleep before I got a call from an employee that someone had been taken to the hospital. They didn't know who it was and neither did I, But something in my gut told me, this had to do with Genesis.
Did you check up on Genesis?
(maybe a little annoyed) Yeah, I had seen Genesis drinking a lot throughout the night and figured he could have gotten sick. When I went to his room, he wasn't there.
Did you go look for him/her?
(pissed) No, I was really overwhelmed. It was the night before his wedding and he was missing? At that point I was just hoping that s/he would be back by the start of the ceremony.
What happened the next morning?
(keep the energy) The next morning, Genesis was gone. It was the day of the wedding and s/he was still missing. I was so worried for Casey. It was at 9 am, I think, a friend of Genesis ran through the front door and (start sad) announced that Genesis was in a coma.
What happened to Genesis?
(bigggg pause) I found out he died that morning. (pausing and shrugging and not liable) I didn't know what to say. I know how it feels to lose a spouse and all I wanted to do was comfort my baby and tell her everything was going to be okay. This is the last thing I ever wanted for her.
Ms. Martini, the MOJ have heard a lot about pesticides today. To be clear, did you ever pour pesticide in a bottle of Cara wine?
No, of course I didn't.
Did you ever try to hurt Genesis?
No, I never would've done something like that.
