Jury continues hearing Wilson's videotaped statement

A Calgary jury will view another hour-and-a-half of videotape evidence in the manslaughter trial of a 24-year-old father, Wednesday.

A Calgary jury will view another hour-and-a-half of videotape evidence in the manslaughter trial of a 24-year-old father, Wednesday.

The tape was shot on March 14, 2000, the day Michael Wilson was charged in the death of his nine-month-old daughter, Emily. She died two days earlier of a broken spine and torn aorta.

Wilson wiped the tears from his eyes as the jury watched more than two hours of the tape Tuesday. On it, a distraught Wilson told police he didn't do anything to hurt his baby. At one point, Wilson says Emily slipped out of his hands and fell back onto his arm and he knew something was wrong because he could feel it.

At another point on the tape Wilson admitted that he thought about killing himself.

The jury is also expected to hear testimony Wednesday from homicide detectives involved in the case.
