Deliberations begin in double murder trial

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Stephen Tyler Logan's future lies in the hands of 12 jurors.

After three days of testimony, the jury is deliberating behind closed doors. Nearly three years after the deaths of Vicki Logan and Wanda Faye Turner, a verdict is expected sometime Thursday night.

As the state called Chief Medical Examiner Shreeder Natarajan to the stand, nearly 70 gruesome photos from Vicki Logan and Wanda Faye Turner's autopsies were enlarged and presented to the court. Logan had tears in his eyes as the M.E. described the women's' injuries.

What we learned Thursday is Wanda Turner had abrasions all over her body, as well as a cord shaped cut across her neck, Turner died from strangulation. Crime scene pictures indicate Turner's entire body was moved after she died and a pillow was placed under her head.

Vicki Logan's body, according to Dr. Natarajan, suffered lacerations after she died. When the photographs of her face were shown to the court, Stephen Tyler Logan covered his.

Natarajan said the extent of Vicki Logan's injuries was more severe than those of Wanda Turner's, and when District Attorney Matt Powell asked if anger played a role in the injuries Natarajan said yes.

We will of course bring you the verdict as soon as it becomes available.
