Testimony ends in missing foster girl trial
Geralyn Graham accused of killing foster child Rilya Wilson
Testimony has ended in the trial of Geralyn Graham, the South Florida woman accused of killing 4-year-old foster child Rilya Wilson more than a decade ago.
Jurors in the case will return Tuesday for closing arguments followed by deliberations. The 67-year-old Graham faces life in prison if convicted of killing Rilya, who investigators say probably died in late 2000.
Testimony ended Wednesday after almost eight weeks.
Rilya's disappearance wasn't detected for about 15 months. Her body has never been found. The prosecution's case relies heavily on three jailhouse informants who say Graham implicated herself in the killing while behind bars.
Graham insists she is innocent. She claimed an unknown state child welfare worker took Rilya for mental tests and never returned her. But trial testimony indicated that story is false.
