Prosecutors in Arizona repeatedly said that Jerice Hunter tried to make herself the victim by reporting Jhessye Shockley missing after she killed the 5-year-old. A jury agreed when it convicted Hunter of abusing and killing her daughter while Hunter was pregnant with another child. The verdict was the culmination of a trial in which prosecutors were unable to produce an eyewitness to the killing or Jhessye's body. Although prosecutors said it was unclear when or how Hunter killed Jhessye, they said Hunter put the girl's body in a suitcase that she dumped in a Tempe garbage bin. Hunter, 41, faces a term of 35 years to life in prison for Jhessye's death.
