UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - The attorney representing a man charged in the shooting death of his girlfriend as she drove to work at a Pennsylvania casino says his client’s statements to police should be tossed out because he was too sick to understand the questions.

Forty-six-year-old Terry Walker of Uniontown is charged in Fayette County with criminal homicide in the February death of 36-year-old Mya Ann Grady. Authorities say she was shot twice in the head as she drove from Uniontown to the Lady Luck Casino at Nemacolin Woodlands resort.

The (Uniontown) Herald-Standard (https://bit.ly/1MxR7HD ) reports that a nurse testified Tuesday that Walker reported signs of acute hypoglycemia, which would have impaired his cognitive skills.

Defense attorney Thomas Shaffer says his client’s rights were violated when police interrogated him for 18 hours without counsel.
