SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Attorneys are asking an Iowa judge to
delay next week's trial of a Sioux City man who's accused of
killing his stepdaughters during a satanic ritual.
Prosecution and defense attorneys say they need to review a
psychiatric evaluation completed on Lawrence Harris Sr. earlier this week.
Harris is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the Jan. 6, 2008, slayings of the eight and ten-year-old girls.
Court records say Harris told police that he had been performing a "strange ritual" that had gone bad.
Prosecutors have said Harris was practicing Satanism and that the killings were part of a ritual from a satanic bible.
