Wright Trial: Closing Arguments

April 11, 2007, 10:43 AM by Lou Raguse

Wright Trial: Closing Arguments
 
Jurors in South Dakota's first capital punishment trial with a female defendant will start deliberating today. They'll get the case after lawyers give closing arguments.

Daphne Wright is accused of abducting, killing and dismembering the body of Darlene VanderGiesen, another deaf woman from Sioux Falls.

If jurors convict Wright of murder or kidnapping, prosecutors will ask them to sentence her to death by lethal injection.

Because of an amended verdict form, the jury could now find Wright guilty of lesser charges of murder or manslaughter, which do not carry the death penalty.

One of Wright's lawyers says one possible scenario is that VanderGiesen died as the result of a fall down the stairs at Wright's house.

Prosecutors say Wright killed VanderGiesen because of jealousy.

We'll have the latest on trial later today on KELOLAND.com and News.
