When Dunn asked if any of Ferazzanno's questions had changed his evaluation of Ewing, Gilbertson said no. Then he added that he wasn't sure a long prison sentence would be a good thing for Ewing, either.
“In my opinion he doesn't meet McNaughton, but I do believe he has a serious mental illness,” he said. “It's serious enough to be a mitigating factor at sentencing.”
After both sides submit closing arguments, Nicollet County District Court Judge Allison Krehbiel will decide if Ewing is guilty of first-degree attempted murder or innocent by reason of insanity.
