Wednesday marked the third day of deliberations, and jurors have just returned the “guilty” verdict.
Late Tuesday night, jurors re-watched two pieces of video. Jurors asked to see surveillance footage of Michael Johnson purchasing a plastic tub in a local WalMart store.
They also re-watched the sex tape involving Barnes, Johnson, Barnes’ sister Deena, and Johnson’s brother.
The court ruled that Michael Johnson killed Phylicia Barnes, then put her body in a container and dumped the body of the North Carolina teenager into the Susquehanna River.
His lawyers insisted that Johnson had no motive for the crime.
