IS KYLR CRAY?!?! LAWYERS CLAIM HE'S NOT COMPETENT WHILST MOVING TO DUMP TRIAL & PUT HIM IN NUTHOUSE!!!
A brazen strategy and gambit to get a suspected killer out of Jackson County jail and into a mental healthcare facility . . .
Lawyers for accused double murderer Kylr Yust say he "suffers from a mental disease or defect" and needs treatment before he faces a jury.
Yust's attorneys filed paperwork Aug. 23 in Cass County Circuit Court that say a doctor who examined him found that he "lacks capacity to understand the proceedings against him or to assist in his own defense" and declared Yust "mentally unfit at this time to proceed," according to court records.
Due to that incompetence, Yust's attorneys argue that court proceedings, including his prosecution for the murders of Kara Kopetsky and Jessica Runions, must be suspended.
