Neuropsychology Expert Witness Testifies Re: Premeditation

Neuropsychology expert witness Michael Daniel testified in Clark County Superior Court (WA) that although murder defendant Dennis Wolter may have sustained brain damage from fetal alcohol spectrum disorder in addition to a traumatic brain injury at age 18, the brain damage did not impair Wolter’s ability to premeditate the 2011 murder of his ex-girlfriend, Kori Fredericksen. Jurors found Wolter guilty of the first-degree aggravated murder of Ms. Fredericksen.
