@joey: Marshall is recapping yesterday's testimony now. CORRECTION: The same professor will not testify today.
@Valm46: Apologies, you are correct. We expect to hear from several other professors who worked with the defendant.
@NT8: Nope! They were about to bring in the jury and then they called the conference.
Defense attorney Rebekka Higgs objects to "This idea that someone can be smart and not be mentally ill." Judge Samour says the defendant's intellect is relevant and not prejudicial. Also points out that the defense brought up his academic performance in cross-examination yesterday.
@Liz: Mainly due to the huge amount of evidence, reports and other documents as well as the number of victims.
The jury is back in the courtroom

Prosecution calls Assistant Prof. Achim Klug PhD, from CU's Neruoscience program
Dr. Klug: Says he came to CU in 2009, after leaving a job in Munich
Dr. Klug: Confirms he is the principal investigator of a lab and has had graduate students work in his lab. He also has interviewed some of the incoming candidates.
Dr. Klug: Interviewed the defendant in Feb. 2011. Was also the "mentor" for the defendant's lab rotation
Dr. Klug: Interview with defendant lasted 30 minutes in Feb 2011.
Dr. Klug: After the interview he sent in a review "My impression was something in the middle"
Dr. Klug: "I put him in the alternate category" because he said the written portfolio was very good, but he felt from the interview the defendant wasn't very interested in the program.
Dr. Klug: Says he felt the defendant was "disinterested," "cocky"
Dr. Klug: Didn't believe he would see the defendant again after the interview, but a few weeks later the defendant asked to rotate in his lab.
@Barb: We've heard it will be more from the neuroscience program, at least to start
@LisaReid: Not yet. It's been mid-day for past releases. We'll let you know with a link ASAP
