The state has rested its case in the trial against the mother of missing baby Gabriel.

Elizabeth Johnson asked not to be in court during testimony on Tuesday as the prosecution played a recording of her phone call with Gabriel's father, Logan McQueary in which she tells him she's killed their son.

The judge told her she had the right to leave and instructed the jury they couldn't hold it against her for not being in the courtroom.

The defense will begin presenting its case when the trial resumes in two weeks. [Watch the trial on].
