Lori Dillon resumed her testimony Thursday in a criminal case against Charlie Bothuell's father and stepmother. A judge must decide whether they'll go to trial on torture and child abuse charges.
Under cross-examination, Dillon says she wasn't surprised that Charlie wasn't found in his basement days earlier, based on the conditions. She says there hadn't been a "no-stone-unturned" search there.
Charlie's father, also named Charlie Bothuell, and Monique Dillard-Bothuell deny the charges and insist they didn't know the boy was in the basement.
Prosecutors say he was struck with a plastic pipe, forced to perform rigorous workouts and given a limited diet.
