The 2 eldest Williams boys will not face charges and will therefore be able to testify, according to an article in today’s Skagit Valley Herald.
In another article, the Skagit Valley Herald reports that Immanuel testified today that Carri and the biological children seemed to be laughing at Hana as she stumbled around outside.

More about Immanuel’s testimony from KiroTV. I am shocked and horrified at how the defense attorneys are treating that poor child!
I also know from Gina Cole’s tweets that the family doctor testified today that he saw nothing amiss. He also did not see the adopted children after July 2010.
