Hoarders’ psychologist testifies at murder trial

A psychologist who stars on a reality TV show testified at a murder trial that a California man accused of killing an animal control officer had a hoarding disorder and could have reacted violently to anyone trying to take away his many animals.

Robin Zasio, from the A&E show “Hoarders,” appeared in court for the defense Tuesday in the trial of Joseph Corey, 67, the Sacramento Bee reported (http://bit.ly/100ax27). Zasio founded the Sacramento-based Compulsive Hoarding Center.
