SALT LAKE CITY -- The judge overseeing the federal trial of the accused kidnapper of Elizabeth Smart is trying to decide what evidence should be public and what should be sealed by the court.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, prosecutors and lawyers for Brian David Mitchell have been going the rounds this week over the release of parts of a report done by a forensic psychiatrist who examined Mitchell.

That report said Mitchell is a pedophile and a narcissist, and most likely pretending to be insane.

Lawyers for Mitchell said the entire report should have been kept from public view.

The judge in the case has asked both sides to submit recommendations for making information public. He will rule on it later this month.
