Colorado clinic gunman wants to represent self
COLORADO SPRINGS - A man who has acknowledged killing three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic says he wants to represent himself in legal proceedings.
Fifty-seven-year-old Robert Lewis Dear told a judge in Colorado Springs on Wednesday that he wants to invoke his constitutional right to defend himself.
The judge told him to listen to the advice of his attorney. But Dear questioned how he could trust his attorney, Daniel King, after King suggested he wasn't competent to stand trial. The judge cleared the courtroom so Dear and King could talk.
King represented Colorado theater gunman James Holmes.
