Testimony Ends In Murder Trial

by Ramonica R. Jones

Jurors listened to closing arguments Monday in the murder trial of an East Texas couple accused of killing their daughter. The case against Rebecca and Johnny Lee is now in the hands of the jury.

Witnesses said jealousy, child abuse, and meth making were common in the Lee household. They reportedly injected 15-year-old Candice Alexander with a massive amount of meth after they'd been fighting with her.

Prosecutors said they were afraid Alexander would tell authorities about their involvement with meth.

The girl died. Now, her mother, stepfather, and a family friend are charged with her murder.
