PEORIA COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — US attorneys want to limit the testimony of an expert witness who was supposed to cover Brendt Christensen’s mental state.
His lawyers dropped the mental health defense last month. It also meant Christensen refused to be examined by the prosecutors’ mental health experts.
Christensen’s lawyers still presented a report from their mental health expert witness and his testimony.
US Attorneys say none of that testimony should be allowed to touch on Christensen’s mental health and, if it is allowed, then they have a right to find a rebuttal expert.
