CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) - A 37-year-old man has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to stabbing his girlfriend’s former teacher in Fremont County.

The Canon City Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/1oPFa71 ) that a judge on Tuesday ordered a sanity evaluation for Sean Overstreet, who is charged with attempted murder, kidnapping, assault, robbery and other charges.

Overstreet is accused of having his girlfriend and co-defendant Courtney Plante lure the victim from his Cotopaxi home before Overstreet stabbed him and smashed his head into the ground. After a struggle, the victim was able to flee his attackers.

Overstreet’s attorney says his client had suffered head trauma in an auto accident that contributed to his mental impairment.
