Sounds like they're going to try an insanity defense.
Durham, appointed by the court to represent Haskell, said his focus will be Haskell’s mental condition “and whether he was legally responsible at the time of his conduct.”But get this:
“I think the evidence is going to show … he is a troubled individual and he has a history of mental illness,” Durham said. “Unfortunately, the delivery of the health care has failed in this system.”
Haskell had been jailed in 2008 on charges of assault and domestic violence in Logan, Utah. Those charges were dismissed as part of a plea deal, according to Logan authorities. Last year, Haskell was served with a protective order from his ex-wife. It was dismissed after they filed for divorce, court records show.Yep, and he had a current RO against him. Aren't we glad the authorities will protect us?
