FRC Shooting Suspect Charged, Held Without Bond For Mental Evaluation

Family Research Council shooting suspect Floyd Corkins has been arraigned, charged, and order held without bond for a mental health evaluation.
Twenty-eight-year-old Floyd Lee Corkins was wearing a white prison jumpsuit and showed no visible emotions or reactions at federal court Thursday. When the judge asked if he could afford a private attorney, Corkins responded that he only had $300 to his name. The judge assigned a public defender. Corkins is charged with assault with intent to kill and bringing firearms across state lines. He was ordered to be held without bond and a detention hearing was scheduled for next Friday. Prosecutors also asked for a mental evaluation.
A few minutes ago FRC president Tony Perkins held a press conference which was covered live by Fox News. I'll have video shortly.
