Rusty to remarry invitation must have gotten lost in the mail.

Russell "Rusty" Yates Jr. will remarry this weekend, two days before his ex-wife, Andrea Yates, is scheduled to be retried in the 2001 murders of the couple's children.

On Saturday, Yates will marry Laura Arnold, a woman he met while attending Clear Lake Church of Christ, according to the Rev. Fairy Caroland, Yates' aunt.

"He's happy and the family's happy," Caroland said, who added that the wedding date was set long before state District Judge Belinda Hill scheduled Andrea Yates' retrial.

Arnold has two sons, ages 21 and 9.


Yates declined to discuss the wedding.

"It's not something I want to talk about," he said. "Just trying to keep my private life, private."

I got nothin'.

Oh come on, Chuck. You can't do something with the name "Rev. Fairy Caroland". I think she was the parson in the land of the misfit toys in the "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" Christmas special.

I can't believe this guy was allowed to get away with this--he now has a life and hers is gone along with the poor children--There is no justice. Fortunately, it's still up to God.
