Opening statements were made Wednesday in the trial for a Dallas woman accused in the starvation death of her stepson.
Elizabeth Ramsey is charged with injury to a child.
Prosecutors said she starved 11-year-old Jonathan Ramsey and kept him locked in his bedroom.
"Elizabeth Ramsey with her husband, Jonathan's dad, threw his body away in a ditch like a piece of trash," prosecutors said in court.
Defense attorneys argued Aaron Ramsey is the monster in this case. They claim he dragged his wife into his scheme.
He has already been convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
Elizabeth Ramsey faces between five and 99 years in prison if convicted.
