In this undated family photo provided by the Citrus County, Fla. Sheriff's Department, Jessica Marie Lunsford is shown. Jurors began deliberations Wednesday, March 7, 2007, in the murder trial of a sex offender accused of kidnapping 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford from her Florida home and burying her alive in trash bags. In closing arguments Wednesday morning, the prosecutor urged them to convict John Evander Couey, saying overwhelming physical evidence and Couey's own admissions told the story of Jessica's death.
