ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - The trial for the father accused of killing his 9-year-old son enters its third day on Wednesday.

Dawan Ferguson is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Christian Ferguson. The boy went missing in 2003 and is presumed dead. He has a rare metabolic disorder that provided proper medication. Without the medication, it is alleged Christian Ferguson would have died within 48 hours.

During the first two days of the trial, witnesses have included former police officers and medical professionals.

On day three, an FBI agent took the stand first and recalled smelling urine and seeing vomit on Christian Ferguson’s bed.

Christian Ferguson’s younger sister, who shared a room with him, said she last saw her brother being taken out of the house by Dawan Ferguson wrapped in a blanket. In the afternoon, a video of an FBI forensic interview with Christian Ferguson’s sister was played for the courtroom.

Before the courtroom was dismissed for the day, a woman who was a nanny and became Dawan Ferguson’s girlfriend took the stand. She admitted she wore a wire for the FBI, but would still be intimate with Dawan Ferguson after Christian Ferguson went missing.
