UPDATE - 11:30 AM

Dr. Larry Nassar is in Judge Reinke's courtroom in Eaton County's District Court where three accusers and an MSU detective are expected to testify at the doctor's preliminary examination.

Two accusers have testified already. Victim A previously testified in Ingham County. Her testimony today is in regards to treatments she received from Nassar at Twistars Gymnastics Club. She testified that after a rib injury Nassar treated her in a back room at the gymnastics facility. She says he penetrated her two or three times over the course of the treatments.

Victim B was a high level gymnast who broke her neck and back. She said she went to Nassar for treatment for her neck injury. She was also being treated by a Sparrow doctor for her injury. She later broke her back and saw Nassar almost every week for treatment of that injury.

She says while he was treating her for the second injury, Nassar began penetrating her vaginally during his treatments. She says the treatments went on for about a year before Nassar told her she wouldn't be able to compete. She then ended her gymnastics career.

The court took a break for a short recess and then one more accuser and an MSU detective are scheduled to testify.

News 10's Christopher Lane is in the courtroom and will have the full story tonight on News 10 at 5 and 6.
