The courtroom has been nearly full every day during the James Koepp triple homicide trial.
Several residents of the mobile home park where the Lentz family and James Koepp lived have been in attendance.
Members of the victims’ family, including the mother’s father, have been here daily.
A man supporting Koepp has been here regularly.
A woman attending college to be a paralegal has been here a few times.
A man who says he is “nosy” has sat behind me most days.
Local attorneys with a professional interest in the trial have attended at times.
Rock County Sheriff Bob Spoden and other high-ranking sheriff’s officials have stopped by.
Other criminal justice officials have dropped in.
Members of the media also have been in and out.
In the triple homicide case, public interest is high.
That isn’t surprising.
