HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

The man accused of killing a Henrico West End mother and then dumping her body outside of her apartment complex is scheduled to undergo a mental evaluation.

Lawyers for Blake Bryant, 31, successfully argued at a court hearing Wednesday that the former marine may have suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder at the time of Samantha O'Quin's murder, according to The Richmond Times-Dispatch.
