PHOENIX - Lawyers made their closing arguments Tuesday at a trial for an Arizona woman charged in the disappearance of her baby more than two years ago.
Elizabeth Johnson, 26, faces charges of kidnapping, custodial interference and conspiracy to commit custodial inference in the December 2009 disappearance of her then-8-month-old son, Gabriel.
She has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Authorities say Johnson told the boy's father that she killed Gabriel and dumped him in a trash bin in San Antonio, Texas.
She later recanted and told police that she gave the baby to a couple at a San Antonio park, but she never provided names.
Gabriel's third birthday was in April, but police don't know if he's still alive.
They searched a landfill, but no body was found.
