Attorney: Murder Suspect Suffered From PTSD

There's new information in the case against a college student, charged with murdering her newborn.

Katie McCoy's attorneys want the judge to allow a psychiatrist to testify the Bellermaine Student suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after giving birth in her Louisville dorm room.

Investigators say McCoy drowned the baby in a toilet after giving birth, and then threw the infant in the trash.

The judge will hold another hearing on the matter next week.

McCoy is scheduled to stand trial in two weeks.
