Thursday at the trial of former Pediatrician Melvin Morse in Sussex County Court the Prosecution presented testimony from two State Police Detectives as well as an employee from the Division of Family Services.

The first detective photographed and made a video of the Morse home during a search of the residence.

He also testified to the dimensions of several sinks and a bath tub.

The second detective testified to photographs and videos recovered from 5 seized computers.

The DFS worker testified to her first meeting with Melvin Morse and his statements about his
stepdaughter Anna, and the incident that happened on July 12th 2012.

She also recalled when she and Pauline Morse were at a Doctor's appointment with Anna, and how Pauline tried to remind Anna that she had fallen several times on her bike on the date of the incident. The trial was adjourned early because the next witness would require a lengthy period on the stand.

The trial resumes Monday morning.
