Headline Goes Here

MIAMI - Rilya Wilson's older sister plans to attend the trial of the woman charged with murder in the foster child's disappearance in 2001.

Geralyn Graham's trial is scheduled to continue Monday. Prosecutors say Graham smothered Rilya with a pillow and buried her near a lake or canal. Graham insists she didn't harm the child, whose body has never been found.

U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., says she will attend Graham's trial with Rilya's older sister, who is now 18. The teenager was 6 years old when Rilya went missing.

Rilya was a 4-year-old foster child in the care of Graham and her companion when she went missing. It was more than a year before Florida's Department of Children and Families discovered she had disappeared.

Graham faces life in prison if convicted.
