About a month after his manslaughter trial in Czech Republic has been postponed, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has yesterday officially returned to Prague to face the court in the final part of his case.
After a psychological analysis from a court expert Tereza Soukupova, Blythe was described as possibly being antisocial, with the psychologist stating the singer "may have some antisocial personality traits." However, a criminal psychiatrist has later stated that Blythe "didn't meet several of the conditions for antisocial personality disorder," adding that even with the stressful prison life, the vocalist showed no aggressive behavior.
A 19-year-old female fan has also given her testimony, stating she has witnessed Blythe pushing Daniel Nosek off stage from the front row at the 2010 concert in Prague. She also added that crowd has parted once Nosek started falling, causing him to directly hit the floor. The trial also saw the testimonies of two security guards, one of which didn't see Blythe pushing anyone. The other guard did however notice Nosek being carried to an ambulance by two individuals.
Today will mark one more witness testimony for Blythe's defense, as well as closing statements from both sides. After the singer has addressed the court, the final verdict can be expected. If found guilty, Blythe can face up to 10 years in prison. According to Blesk.cz, the deceased fan's family is asking for a compensation of 10,000,000 Czech Koruna (about $530,000).
