MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The trial of a former Memphis Police Department officer accused of rape reached its second day.

Wednesday the spotlight was turned on his accuser.

Attorneys for Darrell Malone questioned if the woman he is accused of raping was in her right mind when she filed the police report. 

Malone is accused of raping the woman at his apartment in 2013. He was indicted on the rape charges in 2014.

The woman's counselors argued she developed a form of PTSD and feared reporting what happened to police because she was under the impression that Malone was still a police officer at the time.

Malone's accuser took the stand Tuesday, on the first day of the trial, and described in detail that events of the night she said Malone raped her. 

Malone was not employed with the department at the time.

He was fired from the force months earlier after another incident. In October 2012, he was investigated by MPD for accusations of flashing a gun at a driver. The driver said Malone and others were riding motorcycles recklessly in the Wolfchase area. The driver said Malone called him while he was off duty regarding the incident.

Malone was acquitted of those charges. He was fired from the Memphis Police Department in February 2013.

Malone could take the stand during the trial on Thursday.
