Suspect in Wheatland Shooting to Receive Mental Evaluation

Brooke Eades, K2 Radio

A motion has been filed to conduct a mental evaluation and delay the preliminary hearing for the man accused of shooting and killing his four children and brother and wounding his wife last week.

35-year-old Everett Conant has been charged with four counts of first degree murder, one count of attempted first degree murder, one count of aggravated battery and one count of possession of a deadly weapon with intent to cause bodily injury.

The hearing was scheduled for Thursday, but according to the Clerk of Platte County Circuit Court, Patti Thompson, a motion was filed this morning to delay the hearing in order to conduct a mental evaluation.

If convicted, Conant could be given a death sentence or life in prison without parole.

The prosecution has not yet decided whether they will seek the death penalty in this case.

At the preliminary hearing the judge will decide is the evidence is sufficient to put Conant on trial.
