BOLIVIA — A forensic psychiatrist returned to the stand Friday morning, April 29, in the trial of a former Southport police sergeant charged with voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a schizophrenic Boiling Spring Lakes teen more than two years ago.

Defense lawyers called Moira Artigues to provide her expert opinion on 18-year-old Keith Vidal’s mental health before and during the day he was shot and killed by Bryon Vassey on Jan. 5, 2014.
