This story aired on March 26, 2018. The jury is sequestered Monday night at a hotel. They are under strict orders to not talk about the case or have contact with the outside world until they reach a verdict.
​​James Worley is now hours away from knowing his fate.
In its closing arguments, the prosecution reviewed key witness testimony and DNA evidence.
That includes both Sierah’s and Worley’s blood found in the three crime scenes the prosecution identifies:
—the cornfield where investigators say she was attacked
—the north barn where investigators say she was held captive.
—the cornfield where investigators say her body was buried.
“So the defendant takes Sierah to his barn. He dresses her up and ties her up and lives out his pornographic fantasy. Then what does he do then? He murders her and tries to hide what he did," Fulton County Prosecutor Scott Haselman said.
But the defense pleaded with the jury to not buy the prosecution’s version of what happened those days in July of 2016 when Sierah went missing.
Why? Because of flaws, including an unidentified man’s DNA found on Sierah.
The defense even brought up something new; an eyewitness who allegedly saw another man near the same cornfield and time when Sierah disappeared.
“What does she see a few rows in the corn? A man in red shorts around that time, same area. A man in red shorts. What don’t we have? We don’t have red shorts for James Worley. It wasn’t James Worley," defense attorney Merle Dech said.
This trial has gripped, rattled, and saddened a small close-knit community.
People here say they’re anxious for a verdict. The jury back at 9 Tuesday to continue deliberating.
