CONROE, Texas (AP) - The prosecution could offer more bite
testimony in the Conroe trial of a man accused in the 2008 beating
death of his girlfriend's toddler daughter.
Testimony was scheduled to resume Monday in the capital murder
trial of Blaine Milam. Blood and DNA evidence were presented
Milam and Jessica Carson are accused of beating her 13-month-old
daughter, Amora Bain Carson, to death with a hammer in an alleged
exorcism. The mother face trial later.
Biologist Angela Fitzwater, with the Southwest Institute of
Forensic Sciences, testified last week that one bite to the girl's
elbow had DNA linked to Milam.
The trial was moved 160 miles from Henderson, in Rusk County, to
Conroe because of pretrial publicity about the case.
