Trial date set for Wyoming man accused of mother’s death
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming judge has set a Nov. 18 trial date for a Casper man accused of killing his mother earlier this year.
KTWO-AM reports Andrew Steplock is facing charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, aggravated burglary and possession of a deadly weapon with intent to cause bodily injury in the Feb. 26 shooting death of Deborah Steplock.
Steplock has pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental illness.
Steplock’s attorney told District Judge Daniel Forgey on Wednesday that Steplock is requesting a second mental health evaluation. The Wyoming State Hospital in Evanston recently returned an evaluation but the results were not made public.
Steplock, who remains jailed, did not speak during the hearing aside from answering procedural questions from Forgey.
