Damas is accused of killing his wife and children in their Collier county home.

Three doctors testified about the mental state of accused killer Mesac Damas.

The first psychologist, Robert Silver, believes Damas has a delusional disorder. He testified that Damas believes God has forgiven him and he doesn't care about his fate.

But two other doctors don't agree. One says Damas is faking his religious beliefs.
