Jury still out on Jacobsen case

Jury still out on Jacobsen case
BENTON COUNTY, Wash. -- Eleven hours behind closed doors and counting, the jury is still out on the trial of a Richland nanny.

Kelli Jacobsen is accused of aggravated manslaughter.

The jury is poised to begin a third day of deliberations on whether Jacobsen killed a child in her care.

The trial began two weeks ago.

Prosecutors hoped to prove a history of abuse of the one-year old.
Doctors testified to finding four-breaks in Ryder Morrison's arms, elbows and legs.

Jacobsen's defense argued Ryder's own mother could be responsible for the abuse.

Our colleagues at the Tri-City Herald report the jurors asked to listen to the 911 call made by Jacobsen the day of Ryder's death. They also requested a copy of the testimony by Dr. Daniel Selove, but this was denied.

KEPR will let you know the moment the verdict comes in.

A jury of nine men and three women received the case Tuesday afternoon.
