TEXAS CITY, Texas — A jury on Wednesday heard two recordings of Kevin Edison Smith confessing he killed Krystal Jean Baker, 13, of Texas City, in 1996.

After 10 hours of testimony that included two Texas Rangers, a Chambers County Sheriff’s Department captain, five forensic scientists, a medical examiner and the president of the New Black Panthers Party, the state rested.

Judge Carroll E. Willborn Jr. released the jury Wednesday to give himself time to determine what charges must be deliberated after both the state and defense rested following two days of testimony in the 334th District Court in Anahuac.
