STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) -- A teen will take the stand against one of the people accused of torturing and holding him captive in a central California home for more than a year.
San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Angela Hayes said Thursday that the boy, now 18, will testify Friday morning during the trial of Anthony Waiters.
The 31-year-old Waiters has pleaded not guilty to aggravated mayhem, torture, kidnapping and false imprisonment charges stemming from allegations the 16-year-old boy was held at the home of Waiters' neighbors in Tracy, Calif.
Waiters is the last defendant to be prosecuted in the case. His neighbors, Michael Schumacher, his wife Kelly Layne Lau and the teen victim's then-legal guardian, Caren Ramirez, accepted pleas on Oct. 8 to more than a dozen felonies.
