The line of questioning changed halfway through Amanda Dawn Carmack’s formal police interview, which took place the day after her 10-year-old stepdaughter Skylea was reported missing.

For the beginning part of the interview broadcast in the courtroom Thursday, Carmack responded to most questions within 10 seconds. Carmack detailed the timeline of events that occurred on Saturday and talked about the days that led up to the disappearance.
