Missing Player

A Maryland police chief says the man accused of killing a missing Texas college basketball player appears mentally fit.

Carlton Dotson is being held without bond in his home state of Maryland, after indicating he would fight extradition to Texas. Dotson was the roommate of Baylor basketball player Patrick Dennehy, who's been missing since mid-June.

The police chief of Chestertown, Maryland says Dotson had called 911 on Sunday, and told responding officers he was "hearing voices" and that he needed mental help. Police say Dotson didn't reveal what the voices were saying.

Chief Walter Coryell told reporters that while in custody, Dotson has been "open" and "friendly." He also says Dotson has been cooperating with authorities and appears relaxed.

The chief says Dotson will remain in a Maryland jail until an extradition hearing, which is to take place within 30 days. He says he doesn't know if Dotson is under any medication.
