If she thought she well enough to drive, shouldn’t she be well enough to go to court?
Judge Terrance Duncan appointed a psychiatrist to examine Deborah King at the request of her defense attorney, Daniel Clymo. King was to have faced a preliminary hearing Friday. She will return to court Wednesday to receive the doctor’s report.
It is the fourth time King is being evaluated for her ability to aid in her own defense. One doctor found her competent, and another found her incompetent but re-evaluated and agreed that she had been stabilized with medication.
Clymo told Duncan this week he believes King has worsened and asked that she be examined again.
