NEW YORK – A jury will begin deliberating in the murder trial of Darryl Littlejohn, charged with the slaying of a graduate student in 2006.
Littlejohn is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Imette St. Guillen of Boston.
Her nude body was found on a desolate stretch of road in Brooklyn. She had been bound, gagged and sexually assaulted before she was killed.
During closing arguments Tuesday, the defense said Littlejohn was framed. Prosecutors say he is a sexual predator who liked to pretend he was a law enforcement officer.
Littlejohn is already is serving 25 years to life in the kidnapping of another young woman. Authorities say that was part of a sex attack spree.
