The Canon City Daily Record reports ( ) 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’s attorney says his client had suffered head trauma in an auto accident that contributed to his mental impairment.
