A court-appointed psychologist has asked that another examination be held to determine if Gonzalez can handle the trial while he is on medication for schizophrenia.

Arroyo’s colleagues said they do not believe that Gonzalez is mentally ill, but that he was aware of his actions and that he is playing games.

Gonzalez is due back in court June 21.
