Defense in Wyoming double murder trial argues trauma can hurt memory

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The defense in the Nathanial Castellanos double murder trial is arguing that trauma can cause people to be mistaken about their memories.

A psychology professor from the University of Nevada at Reno, Deborah Davis, took the stand Wednesday in Cheyenne as the defense began presenting its case. She said people can remember things that didn't happen at all or change events that did occur.

She didn't mention anyone by name but a key witness in the case was wounded in the shooting that left two others dead.

Last week, 25-year-old Amber McGuire said she was positive the 34-year-old defendant was the person who shot her and two others in August 2011.

Castellanos' lawyers maintain an unidentified person shot them.
