@FMM: No, instructions for phase 2
Continuing instruction #4: 12. Defendant loved animals, took care of them. 13. Defendant's family moved back to San Diego while he was in 6th grade. He became more subdued after the move and had trouble making friends. That change is argued to be early symptoms. 15. At age 14 his parents sought treatment from Mel LIpsy. 16. Unbeknownst to anyone else, defendant began to have homicidal thoughts and believed his mind was broken. His mother testified her family was stoic. 17. Defendant still was successful in school, played soccer and trumpet. 17 teachers described him as a good student, but "by himself kind of guy"
@SuziLewis: this is the defense's theory, defined in an instruction
Continuing list from instruction #4: 18. Defendant played soccer, teammate remembers him as "sweet and quiet kid who flew under the radar". 19. During this time, despite homicidal thought and social anxiety and other prodromal symptoms, defendant strived to be a good student/neighbor/friend. 20. Defendant was baptized in 1994.
Continuing list from instruction #4: 21. He helped his family and friends, including uncle and neighbors. 22. During undergrad at UC Riverside, he kept mostly to himself but eventually joined into honors dorm activities. 23. College friends never recall him being mean or disrespectful. 24. In summer of 2008, defendant worked as camp counselor in Glendal Cali. 25. He also volunteered with the orphanages.
Continuing list from instruction #4: 26. Defendant wasn't accepted to first applications at grad schools. After being denied, lack of motivation was another early symptom. 27. Mom told him to get a job, which he did through a temp agency. Co workers said he wasn't social there. 28. Second round of applications included 2 interviews, and acceptance to CU. Defendant knew from age of 14 he wanted to pursue neuroscience in part to fix his own mind. 29. He moved to Colorado in summer 2011 and shortly thereafter began dating Gargi. But school wasn't so difficult. He struggled in labs. Classmates thought he was awkward and avoided them.
@rh: theory of mitigation explanation instruction
Continuing list from instruction #4: 30. Defendants illness worsened during winter/spring 11/12. Thoughts began to develop into delusional human capital belief.
