Becker Trial: Case now in the hands of the jury

Posted:

ALLISON (KWWL) -- After a morning of closing arguments by the prosecution and defense, rebuttal by the prosecution and some lengthy jury instructions, Mark Becker's fate now lies in the hands of the jury.

The case went to the 12 jurors who were picked from the original pool of more than 200 at around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

There are two alternates left from the original four that could still be called in if needed.

If no verdict is reached by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the jury will convene for the night and return at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.

When a verdict is reached, we will carry it live on KWWL and at KWWL.COM
