Jurors say Julie Schenecker's murder journal sealed her fate

After three years of investigation and hundreds of emails seized and read by detectives, the trial of Julie Schenecker came down to the journal she left open on her bed. Jurors in the trial told the Tampa Bay Times that Schenecker's spiral-bound notebook, where she penned her thoughts before and after she murdered her teenage children, formed the basis of their decision to find her guilty of first-degree murder. Their deliberations Thursday evening lasted less than two hours, culminating in a unanimous rejection of the insanity defense. Charles Madison, foreman of the jury, spoke about trial after yesterday's verdict. [Video: Bay News 9]
