Henderson Trial: Defense rests, verdict expected soon

LEE COUNTY, AL (WXTX) - Jurors in the capital murder case of Gregory Henderson in Lee County are set to hear closing arguments first thing Tuesday morning. Henderson is accused of running over and killing Lee County Sheriff's Deputy James Anderson.

Monday, the defense team wrapped up its case without calling Henderson to the stand.

Other than opening statements, this was the first time the defense team had an opportunity to present its case to the jury.

It started off by calling Dr. Glen King, a clinical and forensic psychologist and an attorney, to the stand.

He was ordered by the court to conduct a mental evaluation on Henderson. Dr. King testified that he diagnosed Gregory Henderson with cannabis dependence, amphetamine dependence and anti-social personality disorder.

In a cross examination, Dr. King told the jury Henderson was not intoxicated at the time of the incident. Dr. King added, Henderson's level of intoxication at the time of the incident had changed since his initial diagnosis. He said at he first thought Henderson was intoxicated at the time he ran over Deputy James Anderson, but his opinion now is that he was not intoxicated.

Prosecution rested its case Friday.
