TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The fate of a Toledo mother accused of killing her infant is now in the hands of a jury. 

The jury suspended deliberations around 5 p.m. Thursday, and will resume at 8 a.m. Friday morning.

Bacon faces charges of aggravated murder, murder and child endangerment, after police say she caused catastrophic injuries to her baby, which led to his death in 2012.

Over the course of the trial, more than 20 witnesses were called to the stand and more than 90 pieces of evidence were submitted.

The jury asked the court for transcripts of the testimony of four witnesses on Thursday. A judge said compiling the transcripts and getting a printed copy to the jury would take about 6 hours. Another option would be for the judge to read the transcripts, which would take about 6 hours. A third option would be for the court to deny the jury's request and tell them to rely on their memory.

After reviewing their options, the jury chose to request a written transcript of only the testimony of Frank Jones. Earlier in the trial, Jones testified that he agreed to allow Bacon and her son to live with him in exchange for sex from Bacon. Jones told the jury he saw Bacon hurt her son, but Bacon told a very different story on the witness stand. She claimed she was not home when her son was hurt, and that Jones was responsible.

A judge says the preparation of that testimony should take only a couple of hours. The jury will continue to deliberate while that happens Friday morning.
