Mom accused in child's death pins blame on dadPosted: Updated:
The mother accused along with her boyfriend in the death of their 5-month-old daughter argued he was responsible in a videotaped interrogation played for jurors today.
Lisette Cappellan, 22, blames her boyfriend, Michael Aviles, for brutally beating their 5-month-old daughter to death in January during the emotionally charged, two-hour interrogation video that was played in a New City court.
In the video, the Haverstraw mom stopped short of saying how Aviles allegedly killed their daughter, Michelle, insisting that she was asleep while the baby's dad stayed up drinking.
Testimony from the prosecution's witnesses is expected to last until week's end. Trial begins for Haverstraw couple accused in child's deathHaverstraw parents plead not guilty to infant's murderMom arrested in connection with child's beating deathFuneral held for baby allegedly killed by dad
