Judge sets competency hearing in gun case

JACKSON, Miss. —  

A competency hearing is scheduled Friday for a man who wants to use an insanity defense against two counts of being a convicted felon in possession of guns.

Davis Lamar Brooks is charged in U.S. District Court in Jackson with possessing guns in Rankin County in November of 2009 and January of 2011.

Brooks' attorney, Omodare Jupiter, filed a notice in September that says his client will rely on an insanity defense.

A psychological report was filed under seal with the court Monday, the same day the judge scheduled the competency hearing.

A filing in court records says Brooks believed the Aryan Brotherhood gang implanted a microphone in his head and tried to poison him.
