    Both stated the 2 yr old would pick up Caliyah. I hope they aren't trying to blame this death on the 2 yr old! And if you KNEW a 2 yr old was 'constantly' picking up an infant, why would you put them both to sleep in the same area?

    Watching this trial and OMG... what a tragedy for this infant! I wasn’t familiar with this one until recently but why in the world didn’t these drug users allow the grandparents to care for her?! Sickening.

    I believe the state said they have rested? I have to watch again as I was tied up as it was playing.
    I don’t think Cortney or Chris are testifying.

    Today was basically all there FB messenger texts and phone calls From jail. Also this morning two guys were talking. I forget there names.
    Haha I’m really no help.

    Neither McNabb nor Bell are taking the stand. Judge Ott wanted to make sure that they had made their own decisions and not influenced by their teams. A motion was put forward for McN, as there was no evidence that he killed her. No evidence that she was killed in the home. No evidence of any kind. Zilch.

    Judge Ott was making changes and tomorrow morning, closing speeches then the Jury has all day for their deliberations.

    At one point a witness called ? Kidd took the stand. He wa a friend of McNabb, knew his family, knew Bells family. Hung around at trailer home smoking meth and dope with them the evening /morning that Caliyah vanished.

    Kidd told that at 7,41am he had a message from McN, couldn't sleep. Approximately an hour later Kidd had another message from McN, during the conversation McN told Kidd he had done it, killed aliyah. This wasn't reported. And yet the attorneys didn't question further on this.

    9am start in Court tomorrow.

    You were helpful! That's what happened:
    More at the link.
    McNabb/Bell Trial: Timeline surrounding baby's death in question; defense rests without calling parents to stand

    Also, I've been reading the transcripts that Jewels posted upthread. IMO they are valuable, not just in this case but as insight into the minds of abusers/murderers. There's too much to say but it's worth reading them. A couple of points: The deflection to avoid talking about facts, the adamant insistence about not letting anyone else have your kids. IMO it's a gold mine. MOO.

    So.... only Shane Kidd testified for the State, then both sides rested? And jurors will start deliberations today?

    Is that what happened? TIA!

    This is what horror stories are made from. I hope that this trial ends with a conviction for both of these frightening creatures. Sorry not sorry they both look evil. Justice for beautiful little Caliyah. Prayers for you on this thread for Caliyah this is gut wrenching. :mad::confused::(

    Well, I wouldn't think it would take long but that's jmo. I do feel for the defense lawyer for having to cast doubt on the parent's involvement and how hard it must of been for them to make that pos dad presentable to the jury. The nice suit and glasses cannot hide those lovely facial tattoos...absolute yuk
