Van Dam Jury Ends Fourth Day of Deliberations

Jurors in the David Westerfield trial wrapped up their fourth day of deliberations Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, jurors asked to a taped police interview with Westerfield shortly after Danielle van Dam disappeared.

Westerfield is charged with kidnapping and killing the seven-year-old girl who lived two doors down.

Westerfield went on a long, meandering trip to the desert on Feb. 2, the day Danielle was reported missing. In an interview with police upon his return, Westerfield used the word 'we' to describe a trip he claims to have made by himself.

Danielle's body was found three weeks later along a rural road east of San Diego.
