Dylan Groene on video: 'I want to go home' »Play Video
BOISE - Jurors in the Joseph Duncan sentencing trial watched home videos the convicted murderer made after he kidnapped Dylan and Shasta Groene.

Some of the videos from 2005 poked fun at the torture he put the children through.

In one of the videos, Duncan jokes around with Dylan and Shasta saying "They kidnapped me - they won't let me leave."

There's chilling moments in another when he talks to them about their wishes and asks Dylan, "What's your wish?" Dylan says he just wants to go home. Sadly, of course, Dylan's wish never came true.

Prosecutors also highlighted Duncan's murder weapon, which had Dylan's blood on it. Jurors also learned more about the days leading up to his death. One video has Duncan saying, "I shouldn't be taking pictures of you pulling up your pants like that young man - people might think I'm a pervert."

Criminal defense attorney, David Leroy, is not involved in this case, but he says he doesn't envy the jurors' position.

"Hats off to them and respect to them, but they will be assaulted and insulted and challenged by this evidence," Leroy said.

He says there's not much help for Jurors who are feeling the pressure.

"There's no institutional procedure that ordinarily is a place to help jurors especially during the conduct and the receipt of evidence," Leroy said.

Jurors aren't allowed to discuss evidence with anybody, not even amongst themselves.

"They can't talk about it with other jurors until all the evidence is in. They can't talk about it at home with their spouse, so it becomes a very solitary experience," he said.

It's only after they decide Duncan's fate, that jurors can seek help. Leroy says if they need to see a pshychologist, the court could provide one. He says it's unusual, but so is this case.

Duncan's sentencing hearing resumes Monday morning.
