A judge on Thursday denied a mistrial in the case of a woman charged with killing missing South Florida foster child Rilya Wilson.
Attorneys for 66-year-old Geralyn Graham took exception with a prosecutor's question to a detective asking if police checked out whether "little green men" from space may have abducted 4-year-old Rilya.
Circuit Judge Marisa Tinkler Mendez called the question inappropriate but denied the mistrial motion.
Testimony then resumed.
Graham, who was Rilya's caretaker, has insisted she did not kill her. Her attorneys maintain that there is no evidence that Rilya is dead, let alone that Graham killed her.

Graham could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted in the murder of Rilya, who was discovered missing in 2001 and whose body was never found.
