Defense witness testifies Nathaniel Castellanos is mentally insane as the penalty phase of the trial continues. Doctor Jeff Victoroff testified for the defense this morning. Victoroff says, during an examination, Castellanos appeared to be aggressive with a weak hold on reality. He says castellanos talked excitedly about his "superhuman powers to predict world catastrophes, "and that he has a tendency to misinterpret information. Castellanos's former colleague, WayneBetty  also took the stand for the defense. He says Castellanos was reliable and extremely professional, although he did not know Castellanos on a personal level. Both sides are expected to give final statements tomorrow and the jury will go into deliberation within the next few days.
