Quilt of Love

Outside the courthouse, Cathy Brown of Phoenix told HuffPost's David Lohr: "I'm here to support families on both sides. I went into the courtroom twice to listen to testimony. God bless those jurors cause that went on for a long, long time."

"I think they'll have a verdict today. Honestly I think she'll get life without parole."

Earlier in the trial, Brown caused a bit of a dustup in the courtroom when prosecutor Juan Martinez signed her cane and posed for a picture. The defense thought that Martinez might have improperly influenced the jury. The judge ruled otherwise.
