Jury reaches verdict in Powell voyeurism trialWash. jury in voyeurism trial of missing Utah mom's father-in-law reaches verdict
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) ' A jury handling the voyeurism case against a missing Utah woman's father-in-law has reached a verdict.
Jurors told court officials shortly before 11 a.m. Wednesday that they had come to a decision after about one day of deliberations. Staff members began calling attorneys to the court to hear the verdict.
Steve Powell is charged with 14 counts of voyeurism that stemmed from an investigation into the 2009 disappearance of his daughter-in-law, Susan Powell.
The verdict came less than an hour after jurors asked a question of the judge. The question indicated that some members of the jury likely feel that images in one of the exhibits didn't meet the reasonable doubt requirement.
