Defense argues alleged serial killer Ryan Sharpe may have been insane
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A defense attorney says a Louisiana man charged with killing three men and wounding a fourth may have been insane at the time of last year's string of shootings.
The attorney, Brent Stockstill, questions Sharpe's ability to assist in his defense.
The four shootings happened in a rural area north of Baton Rouge and left residents on edge for weeks. A law enforcement official told The Associated Press last year that Sharpe wasn't a suspect until he called the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office and identified himself as the killer.
The official spoke only on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.
