CLEVELAND (WOIO) - Witnesses continue to testify today in the trial of Romaine Tolbert in connection with the death of 4-year-old Eliazar Ruiz.
Tuesday, in a deeply disturbing day in the courtroom, an expert witness testified that the boy had two broken wrists that were consistent with defensive injuries.
On Monday, a trace evidence expert from the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s office described in detail Ruiz’s decomposed body, which was found in trash bags.
Tolbert and his wife were caring for the boy at the time.
