DURANGO, Colo. (KRQE/AP) – Friday, July 2 marks day ten of Mark Redwine‘s murder trial. Redwine is accused of killing his son Dylan and is charged with second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death following the death of his 13-year-old son in November 2012 during a court-ordered visit.
Dylan’s remains were found in 2013 a few miles from Redwine’s home. On Thursday, prosecutors tried to cast doubt on defense attorneys’ suggestion that Dylan might have been killed in an animal attack. A forensic anthropologist testified, stating Dylan suffered a fracture above his left eye, and two marks were found on the boy’s skull were likely caused by a knife or sharp tool.
