A state Superior Court judge has agreed that a Cherry Hill couple should be tried separately on charges of child endangerment, prostitution and witness tampering in a case that grew out of an investigation into the 1998 death of a 3-year-old girl in their backyard pool. Dorina Pizio, 51, and her boyfriend, Martin Hunsinger, 54, were playing host to a Memorial Day party when Samantha Wand drowned. Samantha's father, Michael Wand, was smoking a hallucinogen, PCP, and pleaded guilty in June 2000 to endangering her welfare.

But on the other, Assistant District Attorney Peter Lim countered with what was likely the last picture of Quasir, taken shortly after the 2-month-old boy died at a city homeless shelter Dec. 23, 2010.

Sarmina's response was anything but routine: a 235-page opinion bristling with quotations, citations, and footnotes, and an eight-page index.
