Lawyer: Guy Who Allegedly Wanted War Between Muslims And Christians Not Crazy | Talking Points Memo

Roman Otto Conaway, the 50-year-old Army vet who allegedly wanted to launch a war between Muslims and Christians, threatened to kill President Barack Obama and announced on his Facebook page plans to burn a Koran, is sane enough to stand trail, his lawyer said this week.Last time we checked in with Conaway, he was undergoing a mental health evaluation, a review which he demanded as a condition of his surrender to police in September. On Friday, his lawyer advised the court that they would “stipulate to conclusions in psychiatric report” and that Conaway was competent at this time to proceed. The court found that Conaway “is presently competent to stand trial and is able to assist in his defense of this case.”
