NEVADA, Iowa (AP) - A psychiatrist says a man accused of killing a woman at a Coralville mall may be prone to “explosive outbursts.”

The Iowa City Press Citizen (https://icp-c.com/1YJe25y ) reports William Logan, a Kansas City-based forensic psychiatrist, testified Thursday in Story County court.

Kozak is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Andrea Farrington.

Based on interviews with Kozak and his family, Logan says he determined Kozak may have a borderline personality disorder and intermittent explosive disorder. He noted episodes of extreme anger throughout Kozak’s past.

Prosecutors say Farrington was shot three times while working in the Coral Ridge Mall. Police say Kozak told officers he “snapped” after Farrington texted him to say she was breaking off their relationship.

The trial was moved to Story County because of media attention.
