PHOENIX - Jurors will begin deliberating Wednesday at a trial for an Arizona woman charged in the disappearance of her baby more than two years ago.
Elizabeth Johnson has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, custodial interference and conspiracy to commit custodial inference in the December 2009 disappearance of her then-8-month-old son, Gabriel.
She faces up to 27 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
Authorities say Johnson told the boy's father that she killed Gabriel and dumped him in a trash bin in San Antonio, Texas.
She recanted and told police that she gave the baby to a couple at a San Antonio park, but she never provided names.
Police don't know if the child is still alive.
They searched a landfill, but no body was found.
