Meanwhile, the prosecution is expected to call its own mental health expert.
That after two psychiatrists for the defense testified that Malvo couldn't tell right from wrong, which is the legal standard for insanity.
They added that Malvo lost his sense of identity to convicted sniper John Muhammad, and was unable to resist the impulse to commit murder.
