Edward Morton Trial Continues

A trial continues in the case of a man charged in connection with the death of one child and injuries to another.

Edward Morton is charged with complicity to murder and assault.

The defense began calling their witnesses Thursday after the prosecution rested its case.

In October 2004, police say Morton's three month old baby, Hailey, was hit in the head and her skull was fractured. Hailey's triplet brother suffered similar injuries, but lived.

Court officials tell us the trial will resume Monday.
