Evaluation sought for man accused in bomb plot
TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The attorney for an Illinois man accused in a failed plot to firebomb dozens of northeast Oklahoma churches wants a federal judge to order a mental evaluation before going to trial.
The four-page request filed this week in Tulsa federal court suggests 24-year-old Gregory Arthur Weiler II of Elk Grove Village, Ill., has been hospitalized numerous times over the past five years for various mental health issues, public defender Stephen Greubel wrote.
"(Weiler) has been diagnosed with depression disorder, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and borderline personality disorder," Greubel claims in the court motion, echoing concerns Weiler's family initially had after Weiler was arrested in October. "He has not taken prescribed medications for his conditions since 2010."
