Wheatland Murder Suspect Court Hearing Delayed

Public defenders for the man accused of murdering his three sons and his adult brother last week in Wheatland, are requesting a mental evaluation for their client.  

They want court proceedings against Everett Conant III to be suspended until the evaluation is completed. 

Conant is accused of gunning down the victims in his home last Thursday. 

His wife was also wounded in the incident, but she was released from the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center Monday. 

Conant's preliminary hearing on the murder charges that was set for Thursday has been cancelled.
