In Kragnes' statement, she said that McGinnis failed to demonstrate how PTSD could have precluded any reasonable jury from finding him guilty. She added that PTSD does not make ability to tell right from wrong indistinguishable. There was also no testimony from appellate counsel, whom McGinnis also blamed in his application for relief.
Bailey has 14 days to submit a written summation about the case to McCall. Kragnes will submit one on behalf of the State by Sept. 20.
Look for a full report on today's hearing in the Sept. 6 Journal-Express.
