Jury deliberates in Kareem Lane Trial, verdict expected soon

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Monday, a jury will decide the fate of Kareem Lane. Jurors started deliberating a little after 10:00 a.m., but their first task is to assign a foreman. They will also have access to all 200 pieces of evidence.

The defense noted the evidence was displayed in a collage-like manner rather than in brown paper bags. Apparently, jurors requested they receive an easel in order to view evidence.

Friday, both the defense and prosecution rested their case after two weeks of testimony. Nancy Boren was called to the stand, but according to defense, she was not on the original witness list. The judge allowed Boren to testify.

In 1992, Boren served as a deputy coroner alongside Don Kilgore. There was a mystery surrounding a pair of glasses left at the scene. After cross-examination, Boren state she could not say for sure if the glasses found at the crime scene belonged to Kilgore.

Lane was 17 at the time of the 1992 murder. He was arrested two years ago and charged in the stabbing death of Muscogee County Superintendent Jim Burns.
