The jury is now deliberating the verdict for a man accused of opening fire at the Tulsa County Courthouse plaza.
The jury went into deliberation just after 3:30 p.m. after a lengthy day of jury instructions and closing arguments.
The prosecutors reiterated their case that while Dennehy may have believed in conspiracy theories and that the illuminati were out to kill him. He was not, by the legal definition, insane.
They argued that Dennehy was calculated and knew the consequences of his actions.
The defense reminded the jury that if they have even the littlest doubt on whether or not Dennehy was sane at the time of the shooting on March 7, 2012 then Dennehy should be found not guilty by the reason of insanity and that it is the state's burden to prove otherwise.
There was already an unexpected development earlier Friday morning. When a juror was abruptly dismissed after she admitted talking to Dennehy's mother who was also a defense witness in this case.
They spoke in the hallway during a break in the hallway. She said they spoke about cats.
