ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime scene investigator testified Tuesday in the murder trial of a Terrell County woman accused of burning her newborn's body in a fireplace.

GBI agents spent Christmas Eve 2008 using cadaver dogs to sift through debris at the Trans-Waste dump site on Highway 82 in Terrell County looking for the remains of Samantha Jesse's child.

They found nothing there, but they did find bone fragments in a fireplace in Jesse's home.

Jurors were also expected to hear from the forensic pathologist who pieced the bone fragments back together.
