Video Conference on Speight Charges

Posted:

Appomattox Co., VA - Prosecutors say it could be 90 days before mental health professionals finish evaluating accused mass killer Christopher Speight's sanity.

Speight was scheduled to go on trial Monday for killing eight people at his Spout Spring home in 2010.

A judge has already declared Speight competent to stand trial, but this latest report will look at whether he was sane at the time of the killings.

Monday the judge held a video conference with his defense team and prosecutors to discuss when trial can begin.

Darrell Puckett says the judge wants to make sure the reports are finished before moving forward.

They will hold another videoconference on October 16 to review the mental health reports and set a new trial date.
