A DuPage County jury is now deliberating the fate of a Villa Park woman charged in the murder of her domestic partner.Nicole Abusharif is accused of suffocating Rebecca Klein with a plastic garbage bag in March of 2007.

Investigators say Abusharif then allegedly put Klein's body in the trunk of their car which was parked in their garage.

Police found the body one day after Abusharif filed a missing person's report.

Prosecutors say Abusharif killed Klein to pursue a romantic relationship with another woman and to collect on a life insurance policy.

Defense attorneys say prosecutors never proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
