A Regina woman has taken the stand in her own defence at her murder trial.
Tammy Goforth is charged in the death of a four-year-old girl and the neglect of the girl’s younger sister.
Goforth says she had to cut down on the older child’s food because she often ate twice as much as her sister and threw up.
Goforth and her husband Kevin are both charged with second-degree murder in the death of the older girl and causing bodily harm to the two-year-old.
Goforth described the girls as tiny and shy with huge appetites.
She says she played with them and ensured they received proper nutrition including daily vitamins.
Several photos were introduced in evidence by the defence.
The girls were taken to hospital in August 2012 suffering from severe malnutrition.
The older girl was later declared brain dead and taken off life support, but her sister recovered.
