Judge grants man's request for psychiatric exam

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A Charleston man pleaded not guilty to attempted murder in the shooting of two men in April at a convenience store.

Antonio Collins, 33, appeared before Kanawha Circuit Judge Charles King, who granted a request for a psychiatric examination. His defense attorney told the judge Collins has a "serious history of psychological problems."

He is alleged to be the shooter in an incident that injured Josh Lawson, 23, and Patrick Moore Jr., 22, at the Washington Street West 7-11 April 20. Both men, customers in the store, were shot in the face at close range.

Collins has a lengthy criminal record with multiple arrests for shootings and has served time in federal prison for firearm violations. He was arrested in Ohio.

The judge set a trial date of Oct. 28 for Collins.
