BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas man charged with killing his 6-year-old neighbor is expected to undergo another mental evaluation.
Defense attorney Pat Aydelott says a psychologist will evaluate Zachary Holly next month. Aydelott says Holly has already undergone one mental evaluation, but the results of that evaluation have not been made public.
Holly appeared in court Wednesday in the northwest Arkansas city of Bentonville.
The 28-year-old has pleaded not guilty to capital murder, rape, kidnapping and residential burglary in the November death of 6-year-old Jersey Bridgeman. The girl's death ended a short life marred by abuse. Her father and stepmother are in prison for chaining her to a dresser in 2011.
Prosecutor Van Stone says Holly is due back in court July 25.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Holly.
