Continuing Coverage: Day 10, grandmother on trial

SCHENECTADY -- The defense took the case in Gloria Nelligan's trial Friday.  Nelligan is accused of beating her eight year-old grandson Sha'hiim to death.

Attorney Mark Caruso called two witnesses who knew Nelligan in the community.  One of them, Judith Atchinson, said in court, "the relationship between Gloria and Sha'hiim was full of love and concern for the betterment of Sha'hiim's life and future."

Caruso had indicated he hoped to call one more witness.  Schenectady County judge Karen Drago had asked both attorneys to be ready for closing arguments Monday.
