Judge won't scrap Arizona hearing for convicted killer Hausner

PHOENIX -- A judge is denying attempts to scuttle a scheduled hearing on a convicted serial killer's competency to waive further appeals so he can be executed as soon as possible.

Dale Hausner was convicted of six murders and numerous other crimes in a series of random shootings in the Phoenix area in 2005 and 2006. Victims included pedestrians, bicyclists and animals.

A recent order by Judge Roland Steinle of Maricopa County Superior Court denied a motion by prosecutors to cancel the competency hearing scheduled later this month.

Steinle also denied motions by a lawyer for Hausner to disqualify the Attorney General's Office from the case and to rule that the death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment.

Finally, Steinle denied a psychiatrist's request to withdraw as the court-appointed expert.
