Ashley Moser called to the stand
Da says we're not here to talk about what happeend to Ashley, but to focus on Veronica
Veronica was born Dec 23 2005
Ian picked the name Veronica. Ashley picked the middle name Hanni
"Her personality was: She was like very silly and fun and excited and happy and just fun-loving and caring and sweet" (fighting back tears)
"She liked to draw and she liked to read"
Veronica had just learned how to read
"I would read to her at night"
With her friends "she was a follower, but she was just i don't know, caring, she was not a bully at all. She was just very submissive. Wanted to follow whatever the other children wanted to do"
"She was very upbeat, very happy, all the time"
She didn't care for toys, but Ashley says she preferred coloring and books.
"She had a lot of energy so, (she liked)
going to the park"
Ashley laughs when asked what Ashley was like when she watched a movie. Ashley says she became totally focused on the movie
"She was very independent, I'd say. She wasn't too much of a hugger. Only when she was tired. That's when I knew when she got tired"
Ashley looked for free festivals, zoo, etc to bring Veronica to
@Jennifer: that will be part of this testimony, can only be introduced once per victim
DA mentions that she already told the jury how Ashley found out about her daughter's death
"I don't know who I am anymore, because I was a mom when I was 18 and that's all I knew how to be. And now I'm not a mom"
