Defense in child abuse trial set to begin Thursday

MOULTON, AL (WAFF) -

Closing arguments were held Thursday in the trial for a former Moulton officer charged with child abuse.

Mitchell Breland is accused of abusing two 7-year old girls last August. He was a Moulton police officer at the time of the alleged abuse.

Hospital workers who treated one of the girls sparked the investigation.

Breland took the stand in his defense Thursday. Two young witnesses testified for the prosecution Wednesday.
