Cop testifies in child burning case

Accord-ing to Williams, she observed burnt mark scars on the cheeks, by the mouth and on the arms of the child. She recorded her findings and obtain-ed a statement from the child which she affixed her signature to also.

When the trial continues on April 22, Pashor will lead her defence.
