Last week, a jury convicted Brooks on 76 counts, including six counts of first-degree intentional homicide. Each of those homicide counts carries a mandatory life sentence.

During Monday's hearing Brooks repeatedly interrupted Dorow, as he did many times throughout his trial.

Dorow briefly halted court proceedings and moved Brooks to a separate room. Brooks claimed that he wore a shocking device on his ankle throughout the trial, which Dorow disregarded as untrue.
