Verdict watch as jury deliberates

A Kenosha County jury resumes deliberations Wednesday morning, Feb. 1 in the retrial of a man previously convicted of killing his wife in 1998.

Mark Jensen, now 63, was convicted in 2008 of poisoning his wife, Julie, with antifreeze, drugging her, and smothering her. But a new trial was ordered after a key piece of evidence was thrown out.

Jensen’s defense says Julie Jensen killed herself.

Attorneys gave closing arguments Tuesday, before the case was handed over to the jury.
