Trial of man accused of abusing toddler wrapping up

September 20, 2010 3:08:52 PM PDT
Both sides have rested in the Lucas Coe child sex abuse trial. That's after the defense presented its witnesses Monday. Coe stands accused of beating and sexually assaulting four-year-old Emma Thompson last year. She died of multiple injuries.

On Monday morning, the defense called a crime scene expert who criticized the collection of evidence. A nurse also testified that she happened to drive by and saw Thompson with her mother and performed CPR, but could not feel a pulse.

The jury will hear closing arguments Tuesday morning.
