Jury deliberating in trial of 2 women accused of kidnapping Texas boy, hiding him for 8 years

An East Texas jury is deliberating the fate of two women accused of kidnapping a Houston boy when he was 8 months old and hiding him for eight years before he was found.

Jurors got the case Tuesday after closing arguments in the trial of Krystle Tanner and her mother, Gloria Walker. Each is charged with kidnapping and injury to a child in the 2004 disappearance of Miguel Morin, now 8.

Each woman faces up to life in prison if convicted. The trial is in San Augustine, about 140 miles northeast of Houston.

Prosecutors told jurors Tanner and Walker abducted the boy and denied him proper medical care and schooling.

Defense attorneys argued Miguel's parents didn't care for him and that his biological mother sold him to Tanner.
