Jensen Trial: National Attention To Wis.
ELKHORN - A jury is now deciding if Mark Jensen poisoned his wife, Julie, or if she committed suicide.
The case is drawing national attention.
It's not just the local media interested in this trial. Most of the networks have been in Walworth County for the past six weeks, shining the national spotlight on Wisconsin.
From national networks to Court TV, all eyes have been on the Mark Jensen trial.
"The case had a lot of elements. It's a case that has not been solved for many years," Jean Caesarez said.
Jean Casarez is a correspondent for Court TV. She's been broadcasting from outside of the Walworth County court house in a mobile studio since January.
"I’m on the air during breaks, during lunch hour, even during the middle of they day if they want something explained so it's not out of context for the viewers," Caesarez said.
Now, she and the rest of us are waiting for a verdict 10 years in making, along with what appears to be, the rest of the country.
"For us it's watching from the outside, but for both sides, this is their real life,” Caesarez said.
It’s not just Caesarez in town. From network producers to photographers to engineers, they've called Elkhorn home for the past six weeks.
