“ Yes,” replied the detective.
“Well, if she could hear the children but not see them, that indicates she wasn’t asleep,” Lahey added.
“She did say she could have fallen asleep,” said the detective.
It seems both the state and the defense agree the boys unlocked the front door of the house, got into Wilk’s unlocked car, pushed a “trunk release” button on the driver’s side and climbed into the trunk.
Wilk said her 2-year-old was strong enough to shut himself in the trunk and had done it before.
She had scolded the kids when that happened though.
Wilk's mother and stepfather took the stand late Wednesday afternoon. Both testified they never knew the boys to sneak out of the home without supervision, and he never knew them to play in Wilk's car unless she was right there. Plus, they said she had only had the car two months.
Before the judge sent everyone home for the day, Wilk's mother and stepfather also talked about how medication given to Wilk by a doctor to help her sleep caused her not to act like herself during that taped interview.
Wilk is expected to take the witness stand on Thursday.
