Josh Powell Case Updates-> The Pierce County jury deliberating the v-o-y-eurism case against Steven Craig Powell left court Tuesday without delivering a verdict. The six men and six women are set to resume deliberations at 9 a.m. today. They got the case about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday after attorneys delivered their closing arguments. The case has attracted extraordinary attention because of the defendant’s connections to missing Utah mother and former Puyallup resident Susan Cox Powell.
Jurors twice knocked on the jury room door Tuesday afternoon to ask questions of Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper, who is presiding over the trial. The first time they wanted to know about the ownership of some boxes found in Steven Powell’s room during a police search in August 2011. Culpepper, after consulting with the attorneys, sent back a note telling jurors he couldn’t answer their question and to keep deliberating. They knocked again about 4 p.m. and asked to see a compact disc that contains photos of two neighbor girls taking baths or using the toilet.
Deputy prosecutors Grant Blinn and Bryce Nelson allege Powell took the photos for his sexual gratification. He’s pleaded not guilty to 14 counts of v-o-y-eurism. Culpepper’s judicial assistant lugged a laptop computer into the jury room so jurors could view the disc. They had it for about 30 minutes before deciding to call it quits and come back today.
