Ophoven: Pathologists are taught how to document so others can analyze their work.
Ophoven: The eye pathology doesn't help her age the injury. Lack of oxygen, circulation affected this.
Ophoven: Kamryn didn't have a goose ege or bump on her head, so there was no indication of a recent blunt force trauma.
Ophoven: Kamryn had a drooping face that could support evidence of stroke. A stroke can happened from trauma.
Her symptoms suggest a deterioration over time.
Ophoven: Looking at her doctors visits, she weighed 26 lbs March 1, then went to 24 . Her condition was getting worse.
Judge is calling for break.
Not really. I think Nicole King said she saw her doing between March 17-19. Not sure which day it was.
Johnston: We've been talking about shaken baby but Kamryn wasn't a baby, was she?
Ophoven: No, this was 25 lb 18-month-old. It would take a lot of force.
Johnston: Those bruises didn't contribute to her death?
Ophoven: No, they didn't. She has seen far worse.
Ophoven: Blunt force trauma doesn't result in immediate unconsciousness. The condition can result over a period of days to the fatal event.
Maybanks: The bruises on Kamryn's face and arms could be someone grabbing her and throwing her down on a soft surface?
Ophoven: Could be.
Maybanks: Could Kamryn's injuries be inflicted by an acceleration-deceleration action?
Ophoven: Sure, depending on the circumstances.
Maybanks: When is the last time you treated a battered child?
Ophoven: In the late 1970s.
It was so much tense as frustrating for Maybanks. She wouldn't answer his questions. She would go into other things and he would have to ask more than once to get answer. He was patient. Ophoven didn't do that to Johnston.
State will have two rebuttal witnesses but not today.
