COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The lawyer for the man accused of killing three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic is raising doubts about whether his client is competent to stand trial. Daniel King told the court that he wants the evidence turned over as soon as possible so the defense could assess the "depth" of Robert Dear's "mental illness." Dear stunned the court today when he declared himself a "warrior for the babies" and said he was guilty and won't go to trial.

Investigators are also said to be looking at whether her husband, Syed Farook, planned an attack in 2012 but changed his mind.
