BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The defense is now presenting its case at the murder trial of Perley Goodrich Jr.
Goodrich is accused of fatally shooting his father and pistol-whipping his mother.
Thursday morning the prosecution called two last witnesses.
State Police Detective Bryan Stout testified he was present for the interview of perley shortly after his arrest.
He read a note that Goodrich apparently wrote. It said "I don't know why I did what I did, it's against everything I believe."
Also testifiying was a psychologist for the prosecution-- Debra Baeder. She testified that she evaluated Goodrich and in her opinion, he was not psychotic at the time of the crime.
Prosecutor Andrew Benson said although Goodrich had a history of mental health issues, he was sane when the crimes were committed.
Goodrich's lawyer disagrees.
