*** My impression is that the insanity plea was that Yanni could not have been the murderer because he became too insane to even hold the gun.

*** That's not how insanity pleas work. Not guilty by reason of insanity means the defense admits the crime, but argues that there was a lack of "guilty mind" - that is, that the defendant was of unsound mind; lacking control of self, the defendant committed an unintended crime. In other words, Yanni Yogi's insanity plea meant his defense claimed he did shoot Gregory, but was too crazy by lack of oxygen to be held accountable for it.

** He probably held onto it through his jacket, then destroyed the jacket. Von Karma is usually calm enough under pressure to think of something like that.

** Because it was [[spoiler: Morgan who hatched the plan, not Dahlia. Morgan wasn't interested in revenge, by proxy or otherwise, but in securing Pearl's position as master. Killing Phoenix wouldn't help her in that. And i doubt Morgan or Dahlia were interested in getting away with anything since they were already both in prison.]]

*** Except that [[spoiler: Dahlia Never met Maya, Pearl or for that matter Misty. Morgan might've shown her Maya's picture so she'd know who to kill, but she had no way of knowing which of these three called her]]

*** He had basically already lost. The entire thing with DL-6 was his back-up plan, in case convicting Edgeworth of the Gourd Lake murder didn't work. As for why he wasn't bothered by it, well he had already suffered an the stain on his perfect record, so it was no longer perfect. He probably put all his effort and motivation into just wanted revenge following. He's that much of a self-centered perfectionist, that he'd probably consider that one stain to have destroyed his entire meaning as a prosecutor. This is just speculation on my part, but for the next 15 years I suspect he didn't really give a crap anymore about being a prosecutor or having a perfect record: He just took Edgeworth under his wing and kept the entire guise up until the final few days before the case's limitations ran out, so that he could get his ultimate revenge. After that, had his plan been successful, god only knows what he was planning to do.

*** Except that his whole motive for {{Revenge}} in the first place was an imperfection on his record.

** ... unless Manfred von Karma only prosecuted the case for {{Revenge}} - he may have rather wanted to win the war, not just a battle. As long as Edgeworth was convicted, the truth behind the murder of Hammond being revealed was no matter.
* The reason Edgeworth was in the Gourd Lake was because Hammond invited him, but it's never revealed what he did want to talk about. What could it be?

* When Yogi confesses, why isn't Von Karma at all bothered? I mean, yeah, [[spoiler:Von Karma is holding on to the DL-6 Incident as a backup plan to screw Edgeworth over anyway]], but that's still Von Karma's first-ever "Not Guilty" verdict. So that's okay, but [[spoiler:his first-ever penalty is bad enough to commit murder and childhood-ruination over]]? Or does a "perfect" record merely apply to a defendant-by-defendant basis?

** That would have been a more effective alternative. Though I think you forgot that [[spoiler:Richard Wellington did try to kill Phoenix before Maggie's trial of Dustin Prince's murder. He wasn't successful, but he did have the right idea]].

** That would have been a more effective alternative. Though I think you forgot that [[spoiler:Richard Wellington was close to killing Phoenix. Granted all he did try to kill Phoenix before Maggie's trial of Dustin Prince's murder. He wasn't successful, was hit Wright over the head with a fire extinguisher and gave him amnesia, but he did have the right idea]].
