MIAMI (AP) - It's now the defense's turn to put on evidence in the trial of a South Florida woman accused of killing 4-year-old foster child Rilya Wilson over a decade ago.
The prosecution rested Tuesday after about five weeks of testimony in the trial of 66-year-old Geralyn Graham. The defense is set to begin Wednesday with police investigators who have already testified they never found Rilya's remains or any other forensic evidence.
Defense attorneys also say there's no evidence that Rilya is actually dead. She disappeared in late 2000.
It's not clear if Graham herself will testify. She faces life in prison if convicted of murder, kidnapping and child abuse charges.
The prosecution's case hinges on the testimony of three jailhouse snitches who say Graham confessed to them behind bars.
