GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - A Delaware woman whose longtime companion is accused of waterboarding her daughter by holding the child's head under a faucet says the couple used the term jokingly for hair washing.

Jurors on Friday also watched a video in which Pauline Morse told police the alleged waterboarding by Melvin Morse usually lasted less than a minute.

She also reiterated that she witnessed only one such incident.

Melvin Morse, a former pediatrician, is accused of endangerment and assault and could get more than 20 years in prison if convicted.

As she did a day earlier, Pauline Morse was forced to admit several contradictions in her testimony and statements given to authorities.

Melvin Morse, who has researched near-death experiences involving children, denies police claims that he may have been experimenting on the girl.
