My thinking is that if those rings and diamonds given to Laci by her grandmother were actually taken to a jeweler to be put in a new setting, that it was Scaughty's idea to do so. This way, the rings/diamonds would be out of the way and in safe keeping for him to retrieve once he got rid of Laci. Then, once the hullaballoo was over, he'd get the stuff back and hock it. I think he is as delusional as his mother, and thought that he'd never get caught. Studies show that most criminals take chances and commit crimes because they don't think they'll be caught. It has to do with arrogance and as we all know, Scaughty is full of that.

HMMM! Now that's an interesting idea--I sure hadn't thought of that! IF that's what happened, I'd say THAT is some good proof of premeditation!!
Yes, so often I see where Scott did something really stupid--like calling Amber--and I think "Is he crazy? Does he WANT to get caught/convicted?" But the thing is, I'm making the mistake of not thinking as he is: in his mind, he's not going to get caught. He thinks he can get away with it--as you said.
The ring story could be cleared up right away...ask the jeweler when/who brought the rings in.
If the rings and diamonds were to be reset, I know of no woman who would not go to the jeweler herself to pick out the new setting...
Just a guess,....I think Scott took them in after and was having them reset for Amber....
