BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — The jury in the Sabrina Limon murder trial finished its first complete day of deliberation without agreeing on a verdict.
Limon's lover, Jonathan Hearn, admitted to fatally shooting her husband, but prosecutors say she put him up to it and helped to cover it up. She's been charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, soliciting murder, attempted murder, poisoning and being an accessory after the fact.
Reporters were informed near the end of the day by the bailiff that the judge had received three notes from the jury. The first requested that a snow globe found in Hearn's home be brought for them to examine.
The second requested that a portion of the trial's transcript from the afternoon of Sept. 19 be read back to them.
The third note sought clarification about the attempted murder charge. Judge John Brownlee summoned each attorney and the three of them agreed on a collective message to send back to them.
Hearn was on the stand on Sept. 19. In the afternoon, he testified about plans he and Limon made for their future together prior to the murder, as well as having used steroids.
The jury also listened to wiretap recordings of conversations between Hearn and Limon and watched a video of an interview Limon did with a detective.
Deliberation will resume Thursday morning.
