Guilty Verdict for Emilia Carr
She was found guilty of kidnapping and first-degree murder Tuesday evening.
Emilia Carr is now a convicted killer; possibly facing the death penalty.
"I think everybody is just a little bit numb right now," Carr's attorney, Candace Hawthorne said.
Twelve jurors took two and half hours to deliver the guilty verdict.
The prosecution is asking for the death penalty.
Carr's attorneys are now preparing to try to save their client from execution.
"We feel confident that tomorrow we will be able to present our case to the jury, and they will decide that our client should receive life in prison," Hawthorne said.
But for Carr the battle to avoid the death penalty is just beginning. She must be ready to face the jury once again Wednesday at 1 p.m. to begin the penalty phase.
