Ed Graf; Texas; Day 8 of testimony; Defence fire expert Doug Carpenter says shed fire was not only accidental - but the doors were open. Carpenter contradicts testimony from several firefighters who testified that the shed doors were closed and locked. KXXV;

Carpenter said he examined the materials and assumed the fire could not have gotten hot enough without the air flow of the doors being open. He says there was a sky light made out of fiber glass, but with the doors closed the fire could not have gotten hot enough to melt it. So he says he believes the doors to the shed were open. This contradicts what several firemen testified about the doors being closed and locked......... Later the defense called on Katie Britt, a local clinical psychologist. She looked at previous testimony and overheard most of the witnesses testify in this trial. She said Graf's actions after the funeral where people said he was unemotional were consistent with someone in shock. The state, though, asked Britt if those actions were those of a sociopath and she could not rule that out. The defense expects to continue to call witnesses Friday and expect to have closing arguments Monday. "
