MIAMI (AP) - Trial is resuming in the case of a South Florida woman accused of murdering a foster child whose body has never been found.
The second week of testimony is scheduled to start Tuesday in the trial of 66-year-old Geralyn Graham, who faces a life prison sentence if convicted. Graham has insisted she did not kill foster child Rilya Wilson, who went missing more than a decade ago.
Witnesses so far have said they saw possible signs of abuse on the girl but none have testified they saw Graham harm the child. One witness said she was told Rilya was sometimes kept in a large dog cage, but never saw the girl inside it.
Later in the trial two jailhouse snitches are expected to testify that Graham confessed to killing Rilya.
