    We're outside the presence of the jury. Defense wants to put an expert on the stand to testify about #DeannaCook's mental health & drug use.

    Bud Gillett ‏@Bud_Gillett 4h4 hours ago
    Def witness did a psychological autopsy of Deanna Cook using numerous records; claims Coolk suffered from "a plethora of disorders"

    Rebecca Lopez ‏@rlopezwfaa 4h4 hours ago

    Sarah Mervosh ‏@smervosh 4h4 hours ago
    OK. Judge rules expert can testify on Cook's mental health & drug history in general, but no specific incidents.

    Sarah Mervosh ‏@smervosh 4h4 hours ago
    Still outside presence of jury. Defense wants CPS worker to testify about Cook's drug use & mental health. Judge won't allow it. Irrelevant.

    Shaun Rabb ‏@shaunrabbfox4 4h4 hours ago
    Judge denies CPS case worker testimony abt Deanna Cook rules: irrelevant and character assassination of Cook

    I'll be posting the closing arguments, but the photo of Deanna's family is just so powerful as we go into Verdict Watch!

    Deanna's case caused an outrage in Dallas, over the handling of 911 call. The response time which was 51 mins and then they left.
    Deanna was found 2 days later by her family.
    Deanna, was not perfect. However she reached out, over and over again.
    This is a classic case of domestic abuse.

    Dallas changed the way they do business with 911 and response because of this case.

    Sarah Mervosh ‏@smervosh 2h2 hours agoDallas, TX
    Courtroom is so packed that it's distracting. Judge reminds jurors the prosecution has the burden of proof --> innocent until proven guilty.

    Sarah Mervosh ‏@smervosh 2h2 hours agoDallas, TX
    State has to prove guilt beyond REASONABLE doubt, not ALL POSSIBLE doubt. Jurors can't hold Patrick's decision not to testify against him.
