Ex-soldier's capital murder trial jury watches mom weep

HONOLULU — The mother of a girl who prosecutors say was beaten to death by her father in Hawaii wept when she looked at a picture of the 5-year-old child.

Tarshia Williams testified Wednesday in the federal capital murder trial against former Hawaii-based soldier Naeem Williams.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the mother cried briefly in front of the jury after a prosecutor showed her the picture of her daughter Talia.

She says the last time she saw Talia was when the child left South Carolina to live with her father in Hawaii.

She says the last time she spoke to Talia was by telephone on July 2, 2005. Talia died two weeks later.

Former neighbors testified that they heard yelling, profanities and beating sounds coming from the soldier’s home.
