Psychologist Called To Stand In Mondragon Trial

The first-degree attempted murder trial of Troy Mondragon continued Friday, as prosecutors called neural psychologist Rose Manguso to the stand.
Manguso evaluated Mondragon in 2004, administering a number of tests as well as getting the defendant's own accounts of what happened nearly three years ago, when Mondragon allegedly entered another man's home and stabbed him more than 20 times.
Mondragon, who has pleaded insanity in the case, claimed a memory lapse during the incident. Manguso added the various tests and her one on one conversations with Mondragon led her to believe the defendant is exaggerating and does not suffer from mental illness.
The trial continues on Monday at the Mesa County Justice Center.
