Simpson calls in to support girl accused of killing infant

Former football star O.J. Simpson called Court TV to express sympathy for a 19-year-old British au pair accused of murdering an infant left in her charge and to see his former attorney Barry Scheck in action.

Scheck is part of the defense team assembled for au pair Louise Woodward, of Chester, England, who is accused of killing 9-month-old Matthew Eappen by violently shaking him and then slamming his head against a hard surface.
