Defense: Denton had troubled childhood, years of counseling and medication following diagnosis of ADHD and bipolar disorder at age 8 after behavioral problems led to psychological evaluation.
Five days of testimony last week came from more than two dozen witnesses and about 180 pieces of evidence were presented to the jury.
The trial will pick up Monday morning with closing arguments from the prosecution and defense and instructing the jury of the guidelines it must follow in deciding the case.
Day four of the triple murder trial of Robert Seth Denton included testimony from his 11-year-old sister, who had a hard time answering defense attorney Ricky Curtis’ questions under cross-examination.
Most of the trial’s third day focused on law enforcement procedure: three SCSO detectives described how the murder scene was processed, how evidence was gathered and sent to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and dozens of pieces of evidence were officialy submitted and shared with the jury.
