excerpts from Kayla's testimony

I may have made some mistakes transcribing it. It sounds as if she repudiated everything that she had said earlier.

The questioner is Attorney Fallon.
p. 13
Q. All right. What did Brendan tell you about the fire? You'll have to pull the microphone a
little closer so we can hear you.
A. He didn't tell me anything. I--I kind of made up the statement. And I'm sorry.

p. 15
Q. And in the written statement that I just showed you, you reported that Brendan told you he
had seen body parts in the fire on Halloween;
right?
A. Yes. But that's not true.
Q. All right. And you also told the officers in a separate conversation that day that you had
seen -- or that Brendan had seen Teresa alive in Steven's trailer?
A. Yes.
Q. All right. So you're telling us you made something up to get Brendan into trouble?
Not really. I was just really confused about everything.
A. Yes.
Q. All right. And that she was pinned up in a chair?
A. Yes. But that's not true.
Q. All right. Now, you're saying today you made that up?
A. Yes.
Q. All right. So you're telling us you made something up to get Brendan into trouble?
A. Not really. I was just really confused about everything.

p. 19
Attorney Fremgen is the questioner.
Q. Okay so you were lying to the police officer?
A. Yes.
