PADUCAH (AP) - A man charged with murder in the shovel beating death of a McCracken County woman will be examined by psychiatrists before his scheduled June trial.
The Paducah Sun reported a judge granted a commonwealth motion on Monday that Ronald Lynn undergo the mental evaluation.
Assistant commonwealth attorney Seth Hancock said he does not expect the evaluation to push back the trial date of June 10.
Lynn is accused of killing 66-year-old Teresa Bolden in the front yard of Bolden's home on Dec. 18, 2011. The two reportedly argued over Bolden paying Lynn for work he was doing on her home.
The maximum sentence for capital murder is the death penalty. Lynn also faces a first-degree robbery charge.
