Testimony resumed Monday morning in the trial for Dellia Castile, a South Bend grandmother accused of not reporting abuse that led to her grandson's death.
A jury convicted Castile's son Terry Sturgis of beating 10-year-old Tramelle Sturgis beaten to death last November. He's now serving a life sentence.
Monday morning, on day three of the trial, we heard from Tramelle's 13-year-old cousin, who lived upstairs and said she could hear her cousins screaming in the basement when they were abused.
We heard from a teacher who said she called the nurse and social worker one day Tramelle said his father hit his arm.
We're now hearing from a DCS worker who visited sturgis home in 2010

On Friday jurors heard testimony from Tramelle Sturgis' two surviving brothers. They are now 9 and 15-years-old.
They both told jurors their dad was in charge of the house, but their grandmother would often ask Sturgis to stop the abuse.
The 15-year-old told the jurors about the night of abuse that lead to the death of Tramelle.
Sturgis' 9-year-old son also testified that his grandmother never went downstairs where Sturgis and his five children lived.
