WEST PALM BEACH (WFLX) - The victim took the stand and explained what she says happened to her and her son in horrific detail.
The ordeal was hard to hear. There were moments where it seemed as though she couldn't go on talking and took long breaks, putting her hand on her heart.
It often looked like she might be praying to get through this testimony.
Dressed head to toe in white and speaking with a thick Haitian accent, she recounted details about her repeated rape and how she and her son eventually escaped and walked barefooted to a local hospital.
The woman was wearing glasses today, she says because of what happened she now has permanent eye damage.
The victim also spoke about perminant internal damange from the repeated rapes and how she felt when the crimes were taking place.
"I was crying and praying at the same time," she said. "I thought they would kill me."
