HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Friends and family of  64-year-old Phyllis Mays sat in court Monday, just a few feet away from the 14-year-old boy accused of raping and robbing her in January.

"She's been having flashbacks and nightmares, so that's kind of what we're dealing with right now,"said Chris Feltner, the victim's son.

The prosecution called a detective from the Butler County Sheriff's Office to the stand, who testified new disturbing details about what he says the teen suspect admitted to doing.

"He had also made her have sex with him, performing oral sex, he advised me at one point in time that the blood was covering her body, and he made her get into the shower and wash off," said Det. Jason Rosser.

The victim's son also took the stand, telling the judge how his mother's upbeat spirit had quickly spiraled downward.

"It's like someone's turned a light switch off in her head for her will to live," said Andy Feltner.

 In the end the judge continued the trial for next week, ruling in favor of the defense's request to seek a second private psychology evaluation, saying they received the first one last minute.

The victim's family, who continues to voluntarily identify themselves to put a face to the brutal crime, just wants the process to move forward.

"I don't think [the evaluation] is going to make a difference," Feltner said.

The Monroe High School student is charged with rape, kidnapping, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and felonious assault.
