The fate of a Perry County woman charged with murder and attempted murder will soon be in the hands of a jury.
Monday morning, the prosecution called a psychologist to the stand to combat the defense's claim that Melton's mental issues caused her not to have control of her actions the day of the shooting.
Richard Johnson was Melton's psychologist while she was at the Kentucky Correctional Psychiatric Center and was chosen by the state to determine Melton's "criminal responsibility."
Johnson’s conclusion about Melton was the opposite of another psychologist called by the defense last week.
"I do not see her as fitting the criteria of being legally insane,” Dr. Richard Johnson said.
The jury is expected to begin deliberating Tuesday after both sides give their closing arguments.
