Jurors who heard the case and ultimately decided the fate of Naeem Williams are speaking out. Some are satisfied with the decision while others are calling the verdict a disappointment.
Seven men and five women walked out of the federal courtroom Friday morning relieved but emotionally drained.
"At least now, I feel at peace," said Earlanne Leslie.
Williams was found guilty of the murder of his 5-year-old daughter Talia.
At peace after nearly seven days of deliberations, the jury in the Williams case reached a verdict on Thursday, but asked the judge to hold off reading their decision until Friday.
"After the whole process, to finally get a decision, it's like ah. Okay then, you have to face this media. Nobody wanted to do that yesterday," said Clarence Kaona.
The jurors were split -- eight jurors were for the death penalty and four were against. One of those for the death penalty was Kaona.
"The hardest part for me deciding death or life was can I do that to somebody? And at the end, justice for the girl. That's what got me to go one way," said Kaona.
But, because not everyone felt the same way, Williams will be sentenced to life in prison without parole.
"There was no tension between the 12 of us. Everyone was cordial, respected each other. There was no hostility in the deliberation room," said Juror #2.
Though the jurors didn't agree on the same punishment, they did agree on one thing.
"We were always thinking about Talia for one thing, that was always on our minds," said Leslie.
For some jurors, the emotional scars from the trial will not be erased and, for one, neither will the outcome.
"The pictures. That was the hardest part for me, and I'll never get that image out of my mind and justice for the mom was my other thing. I felt like we let her down a bit," said Kaona.
"Do you feel like justice has been served?" asked Cam Tran. One juror said, "No."
The jurors we talked with said it took them nearly seven days to reach a verdict because they had to go through some 150 mitigating factors.
