The jury in the Mark Goudeau serial murder/rape case resumes deliberations this morning in downtown Phoenix at the Maricopa County Superior Court.
He pleaded innocent to all charges in the current case, and his attorneys claim that the cops got the wrong guy. Goudeau did not testify at the 2007 trial nor at this one, and his defense team did not present any witnesses on his behalf.
With 72 felony counts to consider, the jurors may take several days to reach a verdict, though who knows?
