A Rusk County jury has decided the fate of Jesseca Carson.

She has been found guilty of capital murder in a unanimous decision made just before 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Carson, 20, is guilty of beating her 13-month old daughter to death during an "exorcism" in 2008.

Carson is sentenced to life in prison without parole.

KETK has a reporter in the courtroom and will continue to bring updates as this story develops.

Actually, I don't understand why she did not get the death penalty as well as her boyfriend. She is just as responsible for HER baby's death as her boyfriend was! Why did the State choose not to seek the death penalty?
