A psychiatrist who examined school shooting suspect Christopher Williams says Williams was not insane when he allegedly went on a rampage, killing two people and wounding two others.

Testifying in Williams’ murder trial yesterday, Robert Linder said Williams was able to appreciate the criminal nature of his acts and didn’t suffer from any mental defect that would’ve diminished his capacity to form an intent to kill.

Prosecutors say Williams was enraged after breaking up with his girlfriend and fatally shot her mother and a teaching colleague of hers Aug. 24, 2006.

Earlier yesterday, psychologist Sondra Solomon – testifying for the defense – said Williams was unable to forsee the consequences of his actions.
