Lacey Spears Will Not Testify, Closing Arguments Expected Thursday

It is reported that Lacey Spears will not testify in her trial where she is charged with second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter of her 5-year old son, Garnett. On Tuesday, Dr. Steven Kernie in the pediatric critical care unit at Westchester Medical Center stated that the average child would spit out salt if given orally and that the only way to administer it would be, “by forcing it into some kind of feeding tube.” Dr. Aleksandar Milovanovic, the deputy medical examiner of Westchester County was the last witness for the prosecution who determined Garnett’s cause of death was hypernatremia due to excess sodium intake leading to brain swelling. Closing arguments are expected tomorrow as Spears will not speak in her defense nor will defense witnesses be called.
