Anyone else amazed at how long it takes to get a murder case prosecuted?

Derek: I agree with you 100%, it takes way too long to bring a murder case to trial. Problem is the criminal defendant can waive his right to a speedy trial, causing one delay after another, and there is no requirement that the DA have a right to a speedy trial. Waiting this long is painful for the families of the victims of the criminal justice system.
