FERNLEY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The man accused of going on a killing spree in Northern Nevada was back in Fernley justice court Tuesday morning.

25-year-old Jeremiah Bean was in court for less than two minutes just long enough for Justice Court Judge Robert Bennett to move his case along to district court.

A district court judge in Yerington, Nev. will go over his 2 month long competency evaluation that was done at a mental health facility called Lake's Crossing Center in Sparks, Nev.

Bean faces 19 charges, including first degree murder.

Prosecutors believe Bean is responsible for killing five people in and near Fernley back in May.

In court Tuesday morning Bean appeared sullen and pale.

News 4 caught up with Bean's attorney John L. Arrascada after the hearing.

"Like anyone in jail he's concerned but we are working together to move forward with his case and provide him effective representation," Arrascada says.

A time line is not yet available for when Bean is expected back in court.

Really?!!? "Effective representation" is a major concern? How much representation are the victims and their families gonna get from the state? That fellow should do everyone a favor and "hang it up" if he were any kind of a MAN!
