MIAMI (AP) - The woman on trial for murder in the case of missing Florida foster child Rilya Wilson has been admonished for courtroom outbursts when her former lover was testifying.
Circuit Judge Marisa Tinkler Mendez warned defendant Geralyn Graham she would be removed from court if it happens again. Graham's former companion Pamela Graham was testifying Tuesday when Geralyn Graham accused her out loud of lying.
In another outburst, she said Pamela Graham was holding Rilya in her arms on the day in 2000 when investigators believe the girl was killed. Geralyn Graham apologized for the outbursts. Testimony resumed Wednesday.
Geralyn Graham faces life in prison if convicted of killing 4-year-old Rilya, whose body has never been found. Graham claims a state welfare worker took the girl and never returned her.
