(Raleigh, North Carolina) Prosecutor William Griffin asks Little why she didn't resist jailer Clarence Alligood's advances. Little says she didn't know if he'd kill her or not. Says couldn't be sure if she stabbed Alligood more than once after grabbing ice pick. Says she wouldn't have left him if she'd known how many times he was stabbed. Little says saw Alligood standing when she left cell; saw 2 police cars on leaving. Didn't surrender because she thought they'd shoot her down. Her testimony basically intact.
