The man accused of killing three people and injuring nine in a shooting in Colorado last month said in court on Wednesday that he is guilty.

Police say 57-year-old Robert Dear attacked a Planned Parenthood health care clinic. Planned Parenthood offers family planning, including abortions.

In court, Dear called himself a “warrior for babies.”

He was charged Wednesday with murder. If he is convictedof the charge, he could be sentenced to death.

In court, his lawyer told the judge that Dear is not mentally healthy enough to be tried.

Neighbors described Dear as unfriendly. They said he lived alone in an old camping vehicle that did not have electricity or water.
