(Waukegan, IL) A mental fitness exam has been requested in a Beach Park murder case.

The defense for George Bryce says there are indications that he would not be mentally able to stand trial. Bryce is accused of killing his father Warren with garden shears after an argument in mid-July. Prosecutors did not object to the defense request, and a hearing was set for next week.

The 21-year-old suspect is currently in the Lake County Jail on a 3-million-dollar bond.
