Megan Martzen was escorted by her husband Wednesday morning as she entered the courtroom for the second day of testimony.
Cameras were not allowed in court, but the room was once again filled with loved ones of both Martzen and Ella VanLeeuwen.
Dr. Michael Chambliss, forensic pathologist took the stand and talked about the injuries that led to Ella's death.
A 4 inch fracture to the skull and broken ribs.
17-month-old Ella reportedly died from blunt force trauma to her head and abdomen.
While on stand Dr. Chambliss stated:
" These injuries are still unexplained. To me they stay in homicide category," Dr. Chambliss said.
CBS47 legal analyst Carl Faller says in a close case like this one, having the pathologist explain every detail of the injuries is a tremendous role and is going to go a long way of convincing the jury one way or the other.
" It's especially critical when there were no other eye witnesses to what happend," Carl Faller said.
Martzen maintains her innocense, and attorney Faller says on any trial even the expression of the defendant can be enough to sway a jury.
"I tell everyone who's ever involved in a trial to assume that everything they do is being watched," said Faller.
