Testimony in the trial of a Marion man accused in connection with the death of a two-year old girl is continuing, and may not go to the jury until early next week.
Donald Riddle is accused of Neglect resulting in Death in connection with the death of Arianna Carmack in February of last year.
A medical expert testified Thursday that the mysterious burns suffered by the girl that caused her death were caused by chemicals that had been applied intentionally and were not accidental. The toddler was found dead in her Marion home and investigators say she could have survived had she received medical treatment.
While Riddle was charged a short time after the child died, her mother...Marie Lloyd...was arrested on similar charges earlier this week. She’s being held in the Grant County Jail.
