Holloway Trial: Murder Defendant Reacted To Meth or Mental Illness?

October 7, 2003 - Posted at: 4:09 p.m. CDT

JONESBORO, Ark. - Jonesboro defense attorney David Rees, representing Joel Brian Holloway, is challenging state Psychiatrist Charles Mallory in his client's capital murder trial.  Mallory determined that defendant Holloway was competent to stand trial.  Rees disagreed today, claiming that Dr. Mallory's examination was not as thorough as it should have been.

Today marked the tenth day of testimony in the trial at the Craighead County Courthouse in downtown Jonesboro.

On October 13, 2002, Holloway allegedly shot Tracy Holloway of Jonesboro eight times.  Tracy, a local speech therapist, was married to Joel's cousin, Tim Holloway. 

Defense testimony will continue tomorrow.
