TEXAS – A psychologist recently told jurors at a Brazen County Courthouse that Fil-Am murder suspect Gabriel Hall suffers from depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and dissociative identity disorder or DID.
Speaking at Hall’s capital murder trial, the psychologist says Hall’s DID influenced him the night he killed his foster father Edwin Shaar and seriously injured Shaar’s wife Linda in 2011.
Prosecutors argued there was no evidence to show Hall’s mental illness contributed to his crime. They also said he had a history of wanting to hurt people.
The Pinoy from Cebu faces life without parole or the death penalty for capital murder.
He was found guilty on Sept. 11.
Jurors are expected to begin deliberations on Hall’s punishment early next week.
