Bomb suspect wants tests

The attorney for an Illinois man accused in a failed plot to firebomb northeast Oklahoma churches wants a federal judge to order a mental evaluation. The request filed by public defender Stephen Greubel suggests Gregory Arthur Weiler II, 24, of Elk Grove Village, Ill., has been hospitalized many times in the past five years for mental health issues, including depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and borderline personality disorder. Weiler's family expressed similar concerns after his arrest in October. The request follows his transfer from state custody in Miami to federal custody in Tulsa. An evaluation ordered while Weiler was in state custody found him mentally fit to stand trial. Federal prosecutors said Thursday they don't object to a new test.
