 Like star-crossed lovers in a lurid narconovela, they would steal doting glances at one another from across the courtroom, with Guzman at the defense table, and Coronel in the gallery.

As the jury now weighs Guzman's fate, the former beauty queen still pops into court in support of her husband, who faces 10 counts in a massive cocaine conspiracy.

While Coronel carries herself with the same effortless air she embodied during some three months of opening arguments, witness testimony, and closing arguments, an air of tiredness appears to be creeping in.
