Psychologist: Man accused of killing teens OK to stand trial

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - A clinical psychologist says a man accused of killing two 17-year-olds behind a supermarket in an Atlanta suburb is competent to stand trial if he remains on medication for mental illness.

Jeffrey Hazelwood faces charges including murder in the Aug. 1 slayings of Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson behind a supermarket in Roswell.

Psychologist Christian Hildreth is treating the 20-year-old Hazelwood at Central State Hospital in Milledgeville. Local media report that Hildreth said that when Hazelwood arrived at the hospital in February he was incoherent, reported hearing voices and had trouble forming sentences.

Hildreth said that with new medications, Hazelwood has been able to have conversations and appears to understand how the court proceedings in his case would work.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.

    CVS to end airbrushing in ads for its beauty products

    In the worlds of fashion, beauty and advertising, models are routinely tweaked and trimmed in photos. But critics of the practice say it promotes unrealistic ideas about body image. So CVS, the nation's largest drugstore chain, announced Monday that it will stop "materially" retouching models in ads for its store-brand beauty products by 2020.
