WSMV Nashville reports that the case went to the jury at 1:40 pm ET. Reports on TruTv indicate that this courthouse is open 24/7 and that the sequestered jurors would be deliberating over the weekend if a verdict is not reached today. After the prosecution called a single rebuttal witness the case was rested and closing arguments were presented to the jury. Jerome Barrett is already serving a live sentence for the rape and murder of Des Prez in 1975.
I just want to mention that my friend, and author, Lisa Sweetingham is the correspondent in the field reporting for In Sessions. She's doing a fantastic job.
