A 3-year-old boy found buried at a New Mexico desert compound died in a ritual to "cast out demonic spirits," but his extended family believed he would "return as Jesus" to identify "corrupt" targets for them to attack, prosecutors said in court on Monday.

Defense attorneys said prosecutors sought to criminalize their clients for being African-Americans of Muslim faith.

Much of the Turkish lira's plight may be homegrown, but it shares some key vulnerabilities with other emerging countries whose currencies are now also plunging as fear of contagion spreads, analysts say. South Africa, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and Russia have all seen their currencies slip over the past week because, like Turkey, they remain heavily dependent on foreign capital, especially the dollar. "This is a typical 'flight to quality' move from foreign investors out of emerging markets to safer, developed countries," Agathe Demarais, lead Turkey analyst at the Economist Intelligence Unit, told AFP.

More than two dozen witnesses painted a picture of Manafort, 69, as a lavish spender with little regard for the law. A political consultant in the Ukraine, Manafort stashed his money in 31 undisclosed offshore bank accounts, and skirted taxes on that income by wiring it directly to vendors to snap up real estate, bespoke suits, cars and antique rugs, the witnesses said. It is unclear whether Manafort's lawyers will call any witnesses, and legal experts say it is highly unlikely that Manafort himself will take the stand.

Lawyers for Paul Manafort will have the opportunity on Tuesday to put up their defense, a day after U.S. prosecutors rested their case against the former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump in his trial over alleged tax and bank fraud. Manafort's legal team have asked for the charges to be thrown out, claiming in a court filing on Monday that prosecutors under U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller failed to show the necessary willfulness to break the law. Judge T.S. Ellis said he would talk to Manafort on Tuesday about whether he wanted to take the stand in his defense, a move legal experts say is highly unlikely.
