NAPLES, Fla.-During a hearing for accused killer Mesac Damas, the judge said he will decide by next Thursday if Demas is competent to stand trial.
Damas is accused of killing his wife and children in their Collier county home.
Three doctors testified about the mental state of accused killer Mesac Damas.
The first psychologist, Robert Silver, believes Damas has a delusional disorder. He testified that Damas believes God has forgiven him and he doesn't care about his fate.
But two other doctors don't agree. One says Damas is faking his religious beliefs.
Damas couldn't stop ranting Thursday morning about his religious beliefs.
His family was in the courtroom and were crying when he couldn't stop shouting. They stood up and asked him to please be quiet. Their plea didn't work. He kept going, and the judge removed Damas from the courtroom three times in a 45 minute period.
Prosecuters asked Silver if he was able to perform any exams on Damas to determine if he has a mental illness. Silver said no and that Samas wouldn't allow him to do them.
Silver does believe Damas can be treated and then can stand trial, but the other two doctors believe he isn't mentally ill and can testify in court.
