A mentally ill man charged with killing three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic in 2015 because it offered abortion services can be forcibly medicated to try to make him competent to stand trial, a federal judge ruled Monday.

Robert Lewis Dear glares at his attorney Daniel King during an outburst in court appearance on Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2015, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

He began shooting outside the clinic before getting inside by shooting his way through a door, according to his federal indictment.

He also believes his lawyers are working for the FBI and the judge is also in on the arrangement.

The judge said he concluded the outbursts were not the result of Dear's mental illness but of "selfish, childish and disaffected arrogance.".

Federal prosecutors have said they would not seek the death penalty against him if he is convicted, but life in prison instead.

The third person killed was a campus police officer at a nearby college, Garrett Swasey, who responded to the clinic after hearing there was an active shooter. »
