ONAWA, Iowa (KTIV) -

In day three of Ashley Cameron's murder trial, her father and his long term girlfriend took the stand in her defense. The 26-year old Onawa, Iowa mother is on trial for First Degree Murder, accused of drowning her 15-month old son Markis Dahms back in February of 2012.

In Thursday's testimony, her father, Kent Cameron, took the stand to say his daughter was socially awkward and was less mature than her classmates so he held her back her freshman year.

His long-term girlfriend, Tina Rose also took the stand. Rose said growing up, Ashley often lied and was overwhelmed easily. In a police report, Rose admitted to police that Ashley told her that she held Markis' head under the faucet.

Rose said she also remembered holding Markis and he would arch his back in an way she didn't think was normal. Another juvenile witness, who baby sat Ashley's two kids, also testified that when she baby sat Markis, he would do arch his back and freeze up and she said she thought something was wrong with him.

The trial recessed for the day and will resume on Friday at 11:00am.
