West Memphis Child Murders Trial

17 Mar 1994, Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA — March 17, 1994 – Jonesboro, AR, U.S. – March 17, 1994 – Tracy Fisher (left) talks with Domini Teer, holding her son Seth, during a break in the trial of Seth’s father, Damien Echols, on charges he participated in the slayings of three West Memphis 8-year-olds. The case against Echols and Charles Jason Baldwin went to the jury at 4:59 p.m. after more than four hours of closing arguments. I’m a little bit scared they might come back with the wrong verdict,” said Teer, awaiting a jury verdict. On her knee, she bounced their infant son, Seth, later handing the child to an attorney for a backroom visit with his father, who would hold him for the first time. We plan on getting married,” Teer said in a soft, hopeful voice. We plan on getting out of Arkansas.
