Defence lawyer, Vikram Singh, representing Cynthia Anderson, 40, and lawyer Frances Brennan for Johnathon Rick, 41, each made their final pitches at the re-trial that began in January before Superior Court Justice Andrew Goodman.

Through questions from her defence lawyer, Vikram Singh, she said she has known Rick since high school.

A re-trial was ordered after the woman's brother came forward to police and said the woman had told him all her injuries were self-inflicted.

“I still got the scar there,” she said.
“I'm suggesting you did it to yourself,” Williams [Anderson's defence lawyer] said.
