Product details

Six-month-old Cara O'Neil died from a mysterious head injury. The State of Nita has charged Stephen Donaldson with murder in the second degree, but he claims he did nothing more than comfort and care for his stepdaughter after she fell out of her crib days before her death. There are five witnesses for the plaintiff and four witnesses for the defendant. The trial includes a battle of expert forensic pathologists, presentation of an unavailable witness' testimony through video, and a number of visual aids including a video of the scene.
