BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

The defense team for a 16-year-old Ouachita Parish teen on trial for allegedly murdering his parents presented their case to a Bossier Parish court Friday.

Court began early Friday morning with the defense for Dalton Fletcher, calling their first witness, Clinical Psychologist, Mark Vegan.

Dr. Vegan told jurors that after a series of test and talking with Fletcher, he diagnosed the teen with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Depression.

Vegan also testified in court that Fletcher tried to commit suicide on several occasions from the time he was 13-years-old, according to Russell.

Fletcher's defense attorney reportedly told jurors that Fletcher lived in a "domestic war zone."

The teen faces two counts of 2nd degree murder and faces life in prison if convicted.
