DENVER (AP) — A man accused of killing three people and injuring nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado in 2015 appeared in court in Denver on Friday on new charges and insisted he is competent to stand trial.

Federal prosecutors have asked the judge to order a new mental evaluation for Robert Dear, who was previously ruled to be incompetent to stand trial in state court.

“Justice has been delayed. It's been delayed for four years," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Pegeen Rhyne.
