Woman on trial for murdering baby

May 22, 2006

Cordele - - The trial continues for a Cordele woman accused of killing her baby and putting it in a car bound for a junk yard.

Prosecutors say it happened in December 2004. 24 year old Kayla Wright sat in court today as her defense questioned witnesses about Wright's reputation in the community. Her lawyer tried to prove Wright is a good person who didn't know she was pregnant until she gave birth.

Her attorney says the baby was stillborn and that's when she wrapped up the body and put it in the car. Tomorrow, the defense will wrap up and both sides will present closing arguments.
