Lundberg claimed not to remember any details of the night in question, and said he was most likely under the strong influence of drugs at the time.

He claimed to suffer from psychosis and severe mental health issues that affected his memory and awareness.

At the trial's conclusion in July, the court requested a psychological assessment of Mr Lundberg be carried out before a sentencing could occur.

The assessment concluded that Mr Lundberg was not seriously mentally ill, and that any mental health issues he suffered were self-induced through misuse of drugs.

He had a rocky relationship with Sara Granberg, a key witness for the prosecution, who came forward with information regarding the night Mr Foley was murdered, and said in her statement that she had driven Lundberg around on that night.
