Jury deliberations are expected to begin today in the trial of a former babysitter accused of murdering the five month old infant she was caring for nearly twenty years ago in Bridgeport, Montgomery County.
The defense opened its case yesterday as the trial of a former babysitter accused of murdering the infant she was caring for nearly two decades ago continues in Montgomery County.
The words of a former babysitter accused of murdering the child she was caring for nearly two decades ago may come back to haunt her as her trial continues in Montgomery County court.
The Montgomery County coroner says an Upper Merion infant’s death nearly 20 years ago was not due to natural causes. He testified Wednesday at the trial of a former babysitter accused of murdering the child.
Testimony is underway in the trial of a Bridgeport woman accused of murdering an infant she was babysitting for, nearly two decades ago.
Judge Garrett Page ruled Monday that the alleged recorded confession Melissa Haskell made while sitting in a car with her ex-husband last year was not coerced and can be heard by a jury. Her attorney says his client was manipulated.
Haskell was charged after prosecutors reopened the case following a tip from the 38-year-old woman’s former husband.
Her attorney says the woman was coerced into confessing on tape by her husband during a child custody battle.
Prosecutors say Melissa Haskell was just 19 years old when the infant she was babysitting died mysteriously nearly 20 years ago.
