Tyler stabbing suspect has history of mental illness

By Associated Press

Tyler – The attorney for a 16-year-old student accused of stabbing his teacher to death at a Tyler high school says the boy has a lengthy history of mental illness.

Jim Huggler said Thursday he planned to seek a competency hearing after a juvenile judge ruled there was probable cause for a murder charge. The boy was ordered held until another detention hearing Oct. 5.

A makeshift memorial surrounded a flagpole at John Tyler High School as classes resumed yesterday under tight security a day after the slaying of Todd Henry. The 50-year-old special education teacher was attacked in a classroom Wednesday and later died.
