Jury has questions in Steve Powell voyeurism trialWash. jury questions ownership of disk with images in voyeurism trial of missing mom's in-law
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) ' The jury in Steve Powell's voyeurism trial are wondering whether all the items found in his bedroom belonged to him.
That question emerged during deliberations Tuesday, indicating that jurors may have concerns over reasonable doubt.
Prosecutors claim images used as a basis for charges were found on a disc in his bedroom. Defense attorneys say the images could have been taken by somebody else, noting that authorities did not say whether his fingerprints were on the disc.
Judge Ronald Culpepper says he was unable to answer the question and told jurors to continue deliberations.
Powell is charged with 14 counts of voyeurism linked to images of girls who lived next door.
Those items were uncovered during a search last year into the 2009 disappearance of his daughter-in-law, Susan Powell.
