BELFAST, Maine (AP) — The director of the Maine State Forensic Service says a Maine mother on trial for murder for the fatal beating of her daughter might have been susceptible to making a false confession.

Attorneys reached the end of their arguments in the trial of Sharon Carrillo on Tuesday.

She's charged with the murder of 10-year-old Marissa Kennedy in a case that spurred changes in the state's child protection system.

The jury's expected to return on Wednesday and begin deliberations in the case.

On Tuesday, Dr. Sarah Miller of the forensic service said Carrillo's limited intellectual functioning made it difficult for her to deal with stressful situations.
