Jury needs more time in Powell voyeurism trial

May 15 2012 - 7:35pm

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

Jurors broke for the day Tuesday 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.
