Mental exam to be given to man accused in killing

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A Pima County judge has approved a request to have a man accused of killing his former girlfriend's infant undergo a psychological evaluation to determine whether he's mentally competent.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Jeremy David Millis' attorney said his client shows symptoms of severe autism spectrum disorder and likely can't assist in defending himself against a charge that he killed 8-month-old Connor Kroviak in January.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Deborah Bernini said two doctors would interview Millis to determine his condition.

Authorities say Millis was frustrated on the night that the child was injured because the infant wouldn't stop crying.

Investigators say Millis squeezed the child's throat for several seconds at a time to get him to stop crying.

The child died five days later.
