Jarrod Wyatt is that MMA fighter who cut out his sparring partner’s heart. Sure, this had everything to do with the drugs he was on, but let’s concentrate on that cage fighting thing anyways. Oh media. Anyways, Wyatt was just found mentally competent to stand trial:
Authorities who went to a home near the mouth of the Klamath River on March 21, 2010, found Powell dead on the couch with his chest cut open and his heart, tongue and the skin of his face removed, according to court records.
Wyatt — naked and covered in blood — acknowledged that he had killed Powell and cut out his heart and tongue, authorities said. An autopsy revealed that the organs had been removed while Powell was still alive. His heart was found charred in a wood-burning stove at the home. According to witnesses, the two had ingested hallucinogenic mushrooms and believed they were part of a struggle between God and the devil.
Follett suspended criminal proceedings in January after a doctor who evaluated Wyatt for the defense said he was not competent because he did not understand court proceedings, according to the Times-Standard.
The judge ordered the additional evaluations that cleared Wyatt for trial. Wyatt’s attorney, James Fallman, said he agreed with Follett’s determination and doesn’t see the need to seek a jury trial to determine Wyatt’s competency.
“He’s been better lately,” Fallman said.
Man, how many mushrooms did these guys eat? Based on the live surgery, I’m assuming ALL THE MUSHROOMS.
