JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Court records say a man will use an insanity defense against two counts of being a convicted felon in possession of guns.
Davis Lamar Brooks is charged in U.S. District Court in Jackson with possessing guns in Rankin County in November 2009 and January 2011. He has a history of criminal charges, including aggravated and domestic battery.
Brooks' attorney, Omodare Jupiter, filed a notice Friday that says his client will rely on an insanity defense. Jupiter had no comment Monday when contacted by The Associated Press.
The court requested a mental evaluation in September 2011. Brooks was found competent for trial after being diagnosed with schizophrenia and put on medication. A report says Brooks believed the Aryan Brotherhood gang implanted a microphone in his head and tried to poison him.
