Mental health expert testimony continues in capital murder trial

The defense in Adrian Hargrove’s capital murder trial continued Tuesday with testimony from mental health experts.

Hargrove, 36, is standing trial in Richmond County Superior Court on multiple charges in the Feb. 9, 2008, slayings of 18-year-old Allyson Pederson and her parents, Sharon and Andrew Hartley.

If the jury convicts Hargrove of murder, the trial will enter a second phase in which the jury will be asked to determine punishment – life in prison, with or without the possibility of parole, or death.

Mental health experts for the defense and prosecution have presented opposing opinions about Hargrove.
