The prosecution in the re-trial of Vanessa Coleman rested its case last week.
Today, the defense begins its presentation.
Coleman is accused of multiple counts of facilitation of crimes against Channon Christian during the brutal kidnapping, rape, and murder of Christian in 2007. Coleman's initial convictions in 2010 were tossed out and a re-trial ordered due to drug use and the impairment of Judge Richard Baumgartner in Coleman's first trial.
The prosecution wrapped up its case on Thursday and Friday last week. News-Sentinel coverage and updates are here, here, here, here, and here.
