Update on the atheisticide

Way back when, I mentioned a guy who blew away his roommate for being an atheist. I've been trying to keep an eye on the story to get more info. At last, a few more details have trickled out:

The suspect's attorney says his client is "delusional and preoccupied with God" and believed "the victim ... was the anti-Christ." The attorney is calling for a mental competency hearing.

[Although he's the wrong age, the suspect shares the same name and hometown as a guy who was arrested for firing a .45 in his friend's backyard.]
