Defense Indicates Stepp Will Testify

Opening statements have been made and the trial in underway in Wake County against Joshua Stepp. Stepp is charged with murder and sex offense against his infant step-daughter.

During openings, the defense described a man with serious post-traumatic stress disorder losing it after he was unable, for hours, to soothe his daughter. He denies any sex offense.

The state painted a different picture, vilifying Stepp as a sex-abuser.

If convicted, Stepp could face death.
