University of Texas at Austin Stabbing Suspect Appears in Court

The University of Texas at Austin student accused of going on a stabbing rampage, killing one and injuring three others, faced a judge for the first time this morning.

During the hearing, the state requested a competency and sanity exam for 21-year-old Kendrex White, who is charged with the murder of Graham High School graduate Harrison Brown.

The judge says she won't rule on any motions until White's attorneys supply the court with additional medical records and both sides confer.

Last week, White surprised his counsel by granting a jailhouse interview to a t-v news reporter in Houston.

White told the reporter he has no memory of stabbing anyone.

White's attorneys Jana Ortega and Gabriella Young issued a statement stating they along with White's family were "greatly disheartened" by the interview.

The attorneys went on to say White lacks "the mental capacity to understand the purpose or nature of that interview."
