Judge orders mental evaluation for suspect

Judge orders mental evaluation for suspect

MEMPHIS (AP) - A judge in Memphis has ordered a suspect in the deaths of 3 homeless women to undergo a mental evaluation.

The Commercial Appeal reports Judge John Campbell made the ruling Friday when 52-year-old Michael Mullins was arraigned on three charges each of rape and murder.

The attacks on the women were spread out over a number of years. Miller was arrested last year after police say they found his fingerprints at the scene where 67-year-old Gwendolyn Jackson was attacked.

Authorities say DNA testing then linked him to the deaths of 46-year-old Valerie Ector in 2011 and 43-year-old Beatrice Marie Cole in 1999.

Campbell reset the cases for next month.
