    Sandusky jurors hear of 2 more alleged victims

    Testimony in Jerry Sandusky’s child molestation trial enters its third day Wednesday as prosecutors continue building their case against the former Penn State assistant coach.

    The 68-year-old Sandusky has denied allegations of abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period.

    He sat stone-faced Tuesday as one of his accusers offered explicit testimony before star witness Mike McQueary took the stand. The Penn State assistant coach testified to hearing “slapping noises” and seeing Sandusky standing behind a boy in a Penn State shower in 2001.

     

    McQueary told coach Joe Paterno, who relayed it to his superiors including the administrative head of campus police. Paterno was fired days after Sandusky’s arrest in November, and school trustees later cited, in part, a failure to do more to alert outside authorities. Paterno died in January.
