Tulsa shooting suspect not fit for trial, evaluator says
A man who is charged in a shooting outside the Tulsa County Courthouse "does not have the present capacity to rationally assist" in his court defense, a psychologist who evaluated him reported.
Andrew Joseph Dennehy "is exhibiting psychotic symptoms that are marked by delusions of persecution, paranoid ideation and auditory hallucinations," according to the report of Curtis Grundy, a psychologist retained by the defense to evaluate Dennehy.
Grundy's report, filed Monday as a court document, recommends that Dennehy "be adjudicated as incompetent to stand trial and referred for inpatient psychiatric treatment" for competency restoration at the Oklahoma Forensic Center in Vinita.
