No verdict today in Steve Powell case; jury returns tomorrow

The Associated Press

A jury in Tacoma needs more time to deliberate in the voyeurism case against the father-in-law of a missing Utah mother.

Jurors broke for the day this afternoon after considering Steve Powell’s fate for several hours. They planned to return at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Powell faces 14 counts of voyeurism stemming from what prosecutors say are images found on a disc in his bedroom of young girls who lived next door.

Jurors questioned that evidence during deliberations, asking if the disc was found in boxes containing only Steve Powell’s belongings.

Steve Powell is the father-in-law of Susan Powell, a Utah mother who disappeared in 2009. Her husband, Josh, killed himself and the couple’s two young children in a house fire earlier this year.
