(KTTS News) — It’s day three of the murder trial for former Missouri State University instructor Edward Gutting.
He’s charged with stabbing retired professor Marc Cooper to death and attacking Cooper’s wife, Nancy, at the couple’s Springfield home in 2016.
On Tuesday, a judge denied a request for a mistrial after defense attorneys argued they had word of new evidence in the case.
The head of the history department, Kathleen Kennedy, testified that Gutting had drug problems and missed teaching several classes.
Gutting has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
A judge found him incompetent to stand trial in 2019.
He was declared fit for trial in 2020.
