George is tired, weary, and desperate for this trial to end. Both families are.
His only sister Cathy and her best friend Marion Graham were found stabbed to death in a forest on the outskirts of Izmir in August 2011.
Many are now familiar with this case, the brutal nature of their murders making headlines across Europe and the face of the young girl caught up in all of this - Marion's teenage daughter Shannon Graham.
Shannon was only 15 when her mother was killed.
Her boyfriend Recep Cetin is on trial, along with his father Eyup.
The judicial system in Turkey is very different from our own. A trial comprises of a serious of hearings lasting years - in this case two.
The journey for both families has been emotionally and financially draining.
They have travelled to Izmir many times for key parts of this trial. And many times have flown home - frustrated by the process there.
Recep Cetin has admitted killing both women. But he is on trial for murder.
Exactly why Cathy and Marion ended up in those woods may never be known.
Was it a row over money or were both women simply getting in the way of Recep Cetin's plans to marry Shannon?
All he has said is "love" drove him to do what he did.
Shannon, now 17, has given evidence, telling the four judges in this case marriage was never discussed. She thought her mother and Recep Cetin got on "like a house on fire".
But maybe Marion was protecting her daughter from what she really thought?
As for Eyup Cetin, he has always denied any involvement in the murders. His son also said his father was not in the forest.
But a "star" witness tells a different story, claiming the taxi driver was there. Also DNA taken from the shoe of one of the victims places another member of the Cetin family at the scene. Exactly who - well, that has not been determined.
We have followed this story and the families search for justice from day one.
They are hoping this time there will be finally be a conclusion to the court case at least, so they can start grieving in earnest.
