A trial is under way for a Georgia engineer who is accused of gunning down his alleged lover's husband in a preschool parking lot.
Hemy Neuman, 36, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, and his defense lawyer told jurors that Neuman believed an angel and a demon in the from of Olivia Newton-John and Barry White told him to kill Rusty Sneiderman.

On Thursday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew and his guests examined the plea.
“Neuman`s attorney says Neuman has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder … "The question here is, did bipolar disorder mania cause him to kill or is it just a desperate defense in an attempt to save himself?” Dr. Drew asked.
He added, “When I heard his symptoms, I thought, [people with] bipolar [disorder] experience things like that, and they get very agitated, they get delusional and then go kill people. That happens sometimes.”

Later, Dr. Drew was joined by General Hospital star Maurice Bernard, who has suffered from bipolar disorder. In a manic state, Benard says he threatened to kill his own wife. You can watch that portion of the show by clicking here.
