Jury to begin sixth day of deliberations

Posted: Wednesday, February 16, 2011

ANCHORAGE — The jury in the trial of a young woman accused of conspiring to kill her mother when she was 16 years old is entering a sixth day of deliberations.

The jury in the Rachelle Waterman trial in Superior Court in Anchorage has been deliberating since last Wednesday after hearing 13 days of testimony in the 2004 killing of Lauri Waterman, who was taken from her home in Craig, beaten and suffocated.

Waterman’s first trial in 2006 ended in a hung jury after five days of deliberation.

Two of Waterman’s former boyfriends have pleaded guilty and are in prison.

The jury in recent days has asked to see certain pieces of evidence again, including when the 16-year-old girl was interrogated by law enforcement.
