Rilya Wilson Murder
The state of Florida has decided to retry Geralyn Graham for the murder of 4-year-old Rilya Wilson. The move comes after a jury in January convicted Graham for kidnapping and abuse, but hung 11-1 on the murder charge.
Testimony against Geralyn Graham continued Friday as state prosecutors tried to bolster the credibility of a jailhouse snitch — a key witness in their case against the accused child murderer. Graham faces first-degree murder in the death of foster child 4-year-old Rilya Wilson. Rilya’s body has never been found.
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson is expected to be in attendance Thursday when the murder trial of Geralyn Graham reconvenes. Graham is the foster parent accused of killing Rilya Wilson more than a decade ago.
