Lawyer: Accused Texas school shooter sent to mental hospital
GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - The teenager accused of fatally shooting 10 people at a Texas high school has been moved to a state mental health hospital after a judge ruled last month that he is mentally unfit to stand trial. Dimitrios Pagourtzis arrived at the North Texas State Hospital in Vernon from the county jail in Galveston on Thursday. Attorney Katy-Marie Lyles says she’s happy he was admitted to the hospital so quickly as there is a waiting list for such facilities. Pagourtzis' Feb. 18 trial is on hold because of his treatment at the hospital.
