The results of an autopsy on the body of Jael Thomas who was allegedly murdered by her grandmother in September 2014, show that both her feet were fractured.
The information was revealed at the trial of murder accused Millicent Cornwall Roberts.
Pathologist Dr Lester Simon says the teenager bled to death .and he told the court her body bore numerous lacerations or cuts.
He says the official cause of death was haemorrhagic shock which means her body did not have enough blood to meet the demands of the body.
The doctor told the court this occurred because the teen bled out from a deep cut she had on her left foot.
Dr Cleofoster Beazer, who also examined the body, says he observed cuts to both of the child’s ears, and an area on one ear had a hole that went through and through.
Meanwhile, a neighbour who testified, told the court she was on the phone with the dead girl’s mother and she overheard the grandmother making a derogatory statement about the incident.
She says this was the same morning when it was discovered the child was dead following the alleged beating by the grandmother. The jury has heard the grandmother beat the child with a piece of board was seen dragging the child into her All Saints house.
