STIGLER - A man who is accused in the unsolved shooting death of former Haskell County Commissioner Leo Reasnor will have his mental health evaluated before murder trial proceedings advance.
Clifford Eagle, a convicted rapist, confessed to killing Reasnor in April, court records show.
His attorneys suggested a mental health evaluation, Haskell County District Attorney Farley Ward said. Eagle was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Thursday, but it was rescheduled.
Ward said a joint motion calling for an evaluation of Eagle's mental competency was filed Wednesday and signed by a judge. State psychiatrists will determine whether he is competent to stand trial.
