Judge orders pyschological evaluations of serial rapist

Posted by Criminal Profiling Staff on: Monday 12 December 2005

The man police say raped women in Ahwatukee Foothills and about Phoenix, was ordered last week to a series of psychological evaluations to see if he is competent to stand trial.

David B. Wilson Jr., 32, is charged with 79 separate charges including rape, burglary and sexual abuse, stemming from his terror wave that lasted from July 2004 until the night of Sept. 19, when Phoenix police detectives arrested him as he cased out the apartment of what they said would have been his next victim.

Judge Brian Hauser ordered the evaluation after receiving a report from a mental health specialist with the Maricopa County Superior Court's forensic services unit Dec. 9 during a competency hearing in downtown Phoenix.

According to court staff, a new hearing date will be set after the evaluation has been completed. Until then, Wilson remains locked up in county jail ineligible for bond.
