FAIRBANKS, Alaska — The attorney for a Fairbanks woman charged with killing her 18-month-old son in November is urging the court to admit polygraph evidence that he says could prove she's innocent.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1wNuNiH) reports Amberlynn Swanson took polygraph tests administered by the state and by an expert she hired, David Raskin.
Defense attorney Bill Satterberg wants the test administered by Raskin admitted, plus Raskin's testimony about flaws in the test administered by Alaska State Troopers.
Swanson is charged with murder in the death of Julian Swanson-Byrd.
Satterberg says Raskin's test showed Swanson was truthful when she said she didn't inflict the injuries that killed her son.
Raskin claims the Alaska State Troopers test was inaccurate or interpreted incorrectly.
The Fairbanks District Attorney could not be reached immediately for comment.
