OWENSBORO, Ky. — The trial of an Owensboro man charged with assaulting two police officers in 2010 opened Monday in Daviess Circuit Court, with the defense stating the man is not guilty of the assault because he was suffering from a mental illness that rendered him incapable of understanding his actions.

Christopher Lee Jackson, 26, of the 3600 block of Winchester Drive, faces two counts of felony third-degree assault for allegedly striking OPD officers Whitney Adamson and Sgt. Brad Youngman during a Feb. 10, 2010 incident at the home where Jackson lived with his parents and brother.
