Robey Cross-Examined in Eskew Trial

Posted: Updated:

Day eight of the Jasmine Nicole Eskew trial picked up this morning with Greg Robey still on the stand. Robey testified to prosecutors on Tuesday that he saw Jasmine Eskew shake her daughter Brooklynn. He started Wednesday the same.

Robey reassured to the Defense that he saw Jasmine shake Brooklynn.

From there though, Defense Attorney's began trying to find holes in his testimony. Robey was noticed by defense to have had differences in answers from yesterday to today.

After more questions surrounding Robey's testimony being different from several detective statements, the Defense found a moment where Robey was reportedly alone with Brooklynn.
Robey acknowledged it, but said he was just "walking from the living room into the kitchen in those five seconds."

It was then just minutes later that the defense then attempted to tie Brooklynn's injuries to Robey as he was confronted about potentially harming Brooklynn by the Defense.

Robey eventually returned to his answers from yesterday saying that "she did it."

The prosecutors only testimony today was from Dr. John Howard who showed autopsy photos and said the injuries were not accidental. He said "this is an isolated impact injury to the head producing fatal injuries to the brain and it's covering. Takes tremendous force to cause the injuries.  These injuries are not accidental."

Three other individuals took the stand at one point in the afternoon, including Michelle Pachaco, who supplied Eskew with baby clothes months before September 2012's events. But at the time Jasmine needed help the most, she offered it saying "I told her that I know she doesn't know me very well, but if she wanted me to come and get her daughter for a couple of hours so she could relax, I would."

Robey left the court room today still under subpoena. He is expected to be present tomorrow when his interrogation by police is played for the jury.
