Jurors to begin deliberating missing SC boy case

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Jurors are scheduled to begin deliberating the fate of a 23-year-old mother charged in the case of her missing son.

The jury is set to return to court Friday morning to begin discussing the case against Zinah Jennings.

Jennings is charged with unlawful conduct toward a child. She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Jennings' son, Amir, was 18 months old when he was last seen in November. Police say Jennings lied to them about where the boy is. Jennings says she left the boy somewhere safe but won't give details.

Some of the dozens of prosecution witnesses testified the young mother said she was stressed and needed a break from the boy. Jennings' mother said she doesn't believe her daughter would have ever harmed him.
