Chris Collings Murder Trial Day Two: Officers say murder victim, Rowan Ford, called her accused killer `Uncle Chris'
Rolla, Mo. - For the first time a graphic picture of a raped and murdered nine-year-old girl was shown during a trial that could end with a man being punished by death. An FBI agent testified a photograph presented as evidence was a picture of Rowan Ford’s body. The fourth grader was found at the bottom of a cave with no clothes on the lower portion of her body. Investigators say there were signs she was strangled to death.
