Teammates of the two rape suspects in the Steubenville, OH trial testified Friday that they witnessed the sexual abuse of a girl who was too drunk to move or speak.

A third witness testified that he saw the two accused teens having sexual contact with the victim while she was naked, face down and passed out on a basement floor, reports NBC News.

"She wasn't moving. She wasn't talking. She wasn't participating," Anthony Craig, 18, told NBC. 

Two Steubenville High School students,Trent Mays, 17, and Ma'lik Richmond, 16, are accused of raping a 16-year-old girl at an alcohol-fueled party last summer.

The girl, from across the border in West Virginia, told police she did not remember the events of the party but reported the incident after hearing about it from friends.

The suspects have denied raping her and say any sex was consensual.

According to CNN, a 17-year-old witnesses told the judge that he used his cell phone to record Mays putting his fingers inside the girl's vagina while in a car driving from one party to another.

The witness, granted immunity for his testimony, said he deleted the video the next morning.

"It was one of those moments when you realize you did something wrong or stupid," he said during testimony, according to NBC.

A verdict in the trial is expected by Sunday.
