The sentencing trial for James McVay continues Tuesday after a long weekend.
McVay pleaded guilty but mentally ill to killing 75-year-old Maybelle Schein as part of a plot to assassinate the president in the summer of 2011. He is now facing the death penalty.
Defense attorney Amber Eggert says McVay has a history of mental illness and his life should be spared, with a sentence of life in prison without parole.
McVay has not indicated whether he will testify in his own defense.
