SPRINGFIELD, Mo — Gypsy Blanchard and a pair of medical experts took center stage at the Greene County Courthouse on Thursday, but the topic of ‘deliberation’ and ‘cool reflection’ will drive the conversation today in the 1st degree murder trial of Nicholas Godejohn.

For the defendant, the ability to reflect on his actions is the difference between life in prison or the possibility of parole.

Criminal defense attorney, Adam Woody, unassociated with the case, helps break down the proceedings as closing arguments are expected to begin at some point on Friday.
