The trial of a mother and father in Marshall County accused of abusing their young son is winding down.  Monday, the defense spent the day trying to poke holes in the prosecution's case.

Defense attorney Shane Holloway called several witnesses to the stand, including the 8-year-old brother of the little boy who was allegedly abused.

Yuliana Cortez Torres and Angel Torres Rodriguez are both accused of abusing their 2-year-old son.

Last week, prosecutors called witnesses who said the boy had cuts and scars and also hairline fractures in several bones.

However, the defense says those injuries were caused by the boy himself and had nothing to do with the parents.

The boy's brother testified that their parents are good and don't abuse them.

The defense also called two of the boy's Head Start teachers and his current guardian.

The jury should get the case on Tuesday.
