Week Two of Holloway Murder Trial Nearing End

October 3, 2003 - Posted at: 4:27 p.m. CDT

JONESBORO, Ark. -- Capital murder trial Joel Brian Holloway sat this afternoon with a calm look on his face, while both sides of the Craighead County man's murder trial mainly debate on the conflict of the trial.  Intense questioning focuses on what and how the 30-year-old man was thinking the day he shot and killed his cousin's wife, Tracey Holloway, last October.

Dr. Charles Mallory, a pyschiatrist with the state mental hospital, was in the witness box for most of today's testimony.  Defense attorney David Rees of Jonesboro worked to challenge the state doctor's testing and observation techniques.

Mallory told the all-female jury that there was a strong possibility that the crystal methamphetamine Holloway smoked the night before the murder could actually, "Mimic thinking disorders."

Prosecutor Brent Davis' case for Holloway's guilt points to his voluntary use of the illegal drug (crystal meth) the night before the murder.

The defense claims the defendant, who admitted to shooting the victim eight times from 24 feet away, suffers from Paranoid Schizophrenia, because of mental illness, as opposed to any drug use.
