LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -A Lufkin woman charged with killing her second child while sleeping with it is now on trial.
Vanessa Lynn Clark, 33, and her then-husband, Mark Wayne Clark, 32, were indicted in June 2011 after an investigation into the July 2010 death of their two-month-old son. This followed the May 2009 death of a child between the age of four and six months.

A grand jury concluded in July that the couple was negligent in again sleeping with a child and indicted them on a charge of endangering a child.

Mark Clark was arrested in July 2011 following a domestic disturbance with his wife.

The first witness Monday in Vanessa Clark's case was Nathan Smith with Lufkin Fire Department.
