Westerfield Jury Back At Work

Sponsored by:

Jurors have begun their ninth day of deliberations in the trial of David Westerfield, who is accused of kidnapping and murdering his seven-year-old neighbor, Danielle van Dam. The jury finished reviewing testimony yesterday from a medical examiner and an insect expert who spoke about the possible time of Danielle´s death. The judge will hold a hearing on a prosecution motion today. It may concern a request for a list of witnesses the defense would call for the penalty phase of the trial if there is a guilty verdict. The defense has said it is not ready to provide those names. Westerfield is charged with kidnapping and murder. He could face the death penalty if convicted.
