NASHVILLE - The boy whose father is accused of killing his mother took the stand Tuesday in Nashville.

It's the second day of the murder trial for Caleb Cannon, who is charged with the murder of Nikki Burgess. The Nashville model who grew up in Cumberland County disappeared in May of 2014, and hasn't been seen since. Cannon is from Anderson County.

The boy, who is now 13 years old, was asked about the day his mother disappeared. The child's friend, who is also 13 years old, also testified.

Both said they smelled bleach inside the house and that Cannon told them they could not go into one of the bathrooms.

The state showed Cannon's son had initially lied during his first interview with the Nashville Children's Alliance in 2014. He said he lied at the time because "he was really scared and didn't want to get his father in trouble."

The son's friend testified that he saw Cannon leaving Burgess' house "struggling" to carry a large duffel bag before going to pick up his son at school. He also said that Cannon's son was "nervous" when they were playing together later that day.
