Mental Exam Ordered for Man Charged in 2 Women’s Deaths
A Missouri judge has ordered a mental evaluation for a man who is charged in the deaths of two women who disappeared nearly a decade apart.
KMBC-TV reports that a Cass County judge agreed Tuesday to the request from attorneys for Kylr Yust of Kansas City. His defense team says he suffers from a mental disease or defect and may lack the competence to stand trial. In granting the request for a mental exam, the judge said he wanted the trial to proceed as scheduled.
