Another Wesson Niece Testifies

ABC 30 Action News/March 15, 2005

Emotional testimony from another of Marcus Wesson's nieces today.

The daughter of Ruby Sanchez, now Ortiz, was one of the children killed in the Wesson home one year ago. Ortiz is on the witness stand right now in the Fresno County courthouse.

The jury watched intently as she described how a custody battle turned into a murder investigation.

She says when she went to get her daughter she saw Wesson disappear from the doorway back into the home and she became hysterical saying to officers who were there that he would hurt the children.

After that, she said she heard 5 muffled gunshots and learned her daughter was among the dead.

Ruby also talked about how her life changed when she let Marcus Wesson raise her daughter.

She said she was not able to go to public school anymore, had to change the way she dressed, and watch what she ate.
