Abstract (Document Summary)

During his questioning of [Patricia Hughes], [John Kiernan] said that Linda Blaisdell, who had been sent by Hughes to see [Robyn Twitchell] a day before he died, wrote in her notes that the child had been "moaning in pain," vomiting and needed help walking.

Blaisdell, who previously testified as a defense witness, is expected to be recalled by the prosecution to explain the notes. Blaisdell testified earlier that Robyn appeared "not well," but did not seem to be in a life-threatening situation.

Calling the prosecution's breadth of inquiry a "gross abuse" of court procedures and an 11th-hour attempt to obtain new information to form a rebuttal case, John Hanify, an attorney for the four Christian Scientists who were subpoenaed, made an unsuccessful bid before a single justice of the Supreme Judicial Court in the afternoon to limit questioning of the witnesses to documents involving Robyn.
