Opening testimony took place Monday in the trial for a Port Matilda man accused of raping two young girls on a Centre County farm. Twenty-year-old Elijah Weaver denied the charges, and his attorney said Monday morning that the girls family dynamic led them to making up the accusations. The attorney also said Weaver was sexually abused when he was a child. Prosecutors admit the girls were initially reluctant to talk, but later provided details about the assaults. Police say Weaver eventually admitted to the abuse, saying he was relieved to finally talk about it.
