AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A judge has ordered a second mental health examination of a young man suspected of stabbing four students at the University of Texas.
State District Judge Tamara Needles has ordered an examination of Kendrex White independent of the one commissioned by the 21-year-old suspect’s attorneys. The Austin American-Statesman (https://atxne.ws/2rwVsU7 ) reports that White’s attorneys objected to the extra test, noting that their initial test already found White competent to stand trial. The defense attorneys argued that the prosecution may use the second test to fish for damaging information.
White is charged with murder in the stabbing of four students, one fatally, in a bloody rampage on the university’s Austin campus. Police said after the attack that White suffered from mental health troubles.
