On Sunday, 14 people, including kids in grades five through 12 and some of their parents, set out on a weeklong 250 mile bike ride to raise money. They're all part of Rhinelander's Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church.

RHINELANDER - For the first time on Friday people heard the voice of the woman accused of killing her 1-year-old step-son in Rhinelander.

Avery Edwards died from blunt force trauma earlier this year.

Most preliminary hearings get waived, or you hear from one witness. But on Friday, the court heard from a responding officer, a medical expert, and Ellen Tran herself.

Tran claimed she was trying to protect Edwards. 
 
Prosecutors played recordings from Tran's 9-1-1 call.

"Something's wrong with my stepson, I just got him out of the bath and he's not acting right," said Tran in the call. 

Edwards died soon after that call. 

Oneida County District Attorney Michael Schiek argued. 

Tran changed her story and never mentioned Edwards fell when she first called 9-1-1.

 Schiek played tapes of investigator interviews with Tran.
