6:08 pm
trial, no matter what his defense attorney says. >> for him to do what he did, to carry out what he did so smoothly, you know, i think that's pretty competent. >> reporter: police allege in july he fate llly stabbed 18-year-old mia wilson and wiped off the knife, dumped it and changed his clothes. but today, the lawyer says he's showing signs of delusions and paranoia. a mental competency check could be the first step towards an always difficult-to-prove insanity defense. >> there aren't that many insanity defenses posed, and few succeed, because the standard, in fact, is quite high. >> reporter: he says the attorneys would have to prove that at the time of the attacks their client didn't know what he was doing or didn't understand he was morally wrong.
6:09 pm
>> reporter: juries tend to be skeptical of that. the family's civil suit against b.a.r.t. for failing to keep dangerous people out of the stations is not affected. we spoke with their attorney by phone. >> we're not talking so much about the culpability of perp tr perpetrator, we're talking about the laxness of b.a.r.t. >> reporter: the victim's family is still pushing for a death penalty trial. eric thomas, "abc7 news." happening now, a wind advisory is in effect and will continue all through the night. you can see clear skies in this picture from our camera. meteorologist sandhya patel is here now with a look at those winds that we definitely felt if we were outside. >> absolutely, ama. it is still blustery, especially

6:53 pm
>> i don't care. i don't think it's a shooting slump. i really don't. i don't know, what do you think it is? are we in first place? exactly. i would rather have it fall off in december than come playoff time. i mean, just because i've had a few bad games, i'm not going to worry about not shooting the ball well. i'm one of the best shooters that ever played, so i don't care what people say. >> confidence is important when you're a shooter. scoring on alabama's defense isn't the only thing on kyler murray's mind. the heisman trophy winning quarterback is still facing a tough decision, football or baseball? they'll take on alabama this weekend in the semifinals of the college football playoffs. he signed a $4.6 million contract to play baseball with the a's, but hasn't ruled out
