, Index number: AMR 51/164/1999

A psychologist for the defence has found Johnnie Lee McKnight incompetent to stand trial. The defence have therefore filed a pre-trial "motion to determine capacity of defendant to stand trial". The motion was due to be heard on 11 October 1999, but was postponed when the prosecution announced that it would arrange its own assessment of Johnnie McKnight's competency.
