Girl tells of accuser's behavior in Ohio rape case

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A friend of the accuser in the rape trial of two Ohio high school football players has testified that she grew angry at her friend over her behavior at a party the night of the alleged attack.

West Virginia high school junior Gianna Anile says the accuser snapped at her when confronted about her drinking at the party and refused to stay behind with Anile and another friend.

Anile also testified under questioning by defense attorney Walter Madison that the 16-year-old accuser had a history of heavy alcohol consumption.

Anile's testimony was interrupted Saturday when Judge Thomas Lipps agreed to let her listen to her own recorded statement to police last summer to refresh her memory.
