'Take care of Maya' trial enters day 3

In 2016, at just 10 years old, Maya Kowalski — the girl at the center of the Netflix documentary — was admitted to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital (JHAC) in St. Petersburg, Florida, for severe pain and then promptly removed from the custody of her parents after staff accused them of "medical abuse." Her mother, Beata Kowalski, hung herself in her garage on Jan. 7, 2016, "to free her daughter" after going months without seeing her due to the medical abuse allegations, according to the family's attorney, Greg Anderson. "It’s been extremely difficult on the Kowalskis after [what] they went through and … it’s disappointing, the level of litigation they have to go through to get their right to speak in court," Anderson told Fox News Digital ahead of jury selection. "It’s been overwhelming for my law firm, my other clients and my family."
