Deliberations begin in missing baby Gabriel case

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Jury deliberations have begun in an Arizona woman's trial in the disappearance of her baby more than two years ago.

A Maricopa County Superior Court jury began deliberating Wednesday. They're to continue Thursday.

Elizabeth Johnson is charged with 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.
