Testimony continues in missing Fla. foster child case
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A troubling testimony continues in court from the former lover of a woman accused of killing her foster child.
Pamela Graham, the domestic partner of Geralyn Graham continues to be questioned by Geralyn's defense attorney Tuesday afternoon.
Geralyn has been charged with the murder of 4-year-old Rilya Wilson, who went missing more then a decade ago. Her body has never been found.
Pamela testified that Geralyn hit Rilya and purchased a dog cage to place her in and tied her hands.
Pamela: "She was just being disobedient."
Defense: "She was being disobedient and that made you angry?"
Pamela: "I didn't like it. I can't say it made me angry."
Defense: "You didn't like it one bit, so you went ahead and you hit her some more?"
Pamela: "No I did not."
Geralyn's attorney raised question about who really disciplined the child. The defense also questioned Pamela's temper, and how she never took Rilya to a doctor.
Defense: "You had left little marks on Rilya's leg from you striking Rilya with a switch."
Defense: "Geralyn thought that if you had taken Rilya to the doctor for medical attention, that you could have been arrested for child abuse?"
Pamela: "She told me that they might start asking questions, yes."
In a case built on circumstantial evidence against Geralyn, the foster parent of Rilya, the prosecution is looking to prove their case on key witnesses and their testimony.
