Salt Lake City, UT – Elizabeth Smart has spent the past day and half testifying in federal court about her 2002 kidnapping when she was 14 years old. In a steady voice, usually facing the jury, Smart, now 23, has answered detailed questions about her terrifying 9 months in captivity. KUER's Jenny Brundin has been in the courtroom (and shares more details).
