Trial resumes in case of missing Fla. foster girl
MIAMI (AP) -- Trial has resumed in the case of a South Florida woman accused of killing missing Florida foster child Rilya Wilson, with the key prosecution witness still on the stand.
Jailhouse informant Robin Lunceford was undergoing cross-examination Wednesday by an attorney for defendant Geralyn Graham. The defense is trying to poke holes in Lunceford's story that Graham confessed in jail to smothering 4-year-old Rilya with a pillow and burying her body near water. The body was never found.
The 66-year-old Graham faces life in prison if convicted of murder, kidnapping and child abuse charges. Graham claims Rilya was taken from her home for mental tests by a state worker in 2001 and never returned. Investigators say no evidence backs up Graham's story.
The trial is expected to last several more weeks.
