    Testimony ends in Bench trial


    defense called a psychologist who interviewed Bench twice last year for a total of almost 10 hours. He says, in his opinion, Bench is a schizophrenic and suffers from OCD as well. Then, the state called another psychologist to the stand, who interviewed bench last year for 6 1/2 hours, who told the jury that that Bench was faking.

    ...

    Closing arguments are set for Thursday morning. Jury instructions are set to begin at 10:00 a.m. and the verdict may come in Thursday.

    It was the story of incredible loss from those who knew Braylee Henry best that started the sentencing phase Monday morning. Jurors heard statements from each of Braylee's immediate family, many saying they lived with guilt after promising her they would always take care of her. But it was her mother, Renee, who told many emotional jurors how proud she was to have been Braylee's mother and to be the very first to feel her life, and to hold in her heart.

    Afterwards, prosecutors immediately questioned one of Bench's former neighbors who claimed he harassed her while she would sit at her pool. Jurors later heard from Bench's stepfather who described a fight he had at home with Bench when he lived in Illinois.

    The state called two Velma teenagers to testify about encounters they had with Bench at the store.

    One of the girls said Bench showed aggressive behavior, chasing her car in the parking lot.

    She said he wanted to learn her name and asked if they could hang out later.

    The other testified she was at the convenience store the day before the murder.

    She said Bench followed her around the store and told her she was pretty after he put his arm around her.
