PROVIDENCE, R.I.—The lawyer for man who killed four neighbors in Rhode Island as a teenager says he's now willing to get psychiatric treatment.
The Providence Journal reports ( http://bit.ly/sFGLts) an attorney for Craig Price on Wednesday told the state's highest court he had refused psychiatric treatment as a teenager at the advice of his lawyer.
The 38-year-old Price wants the court to set aside the 25-year prison sentence he received for refusing court-ordered psychological testing. He is imprisoned in Florida.
Price was 15 years old when he confessed to four killings in Warwick. He was eligible to be released at age 21 because he was prosecuted as a juvenile, but was found in contempt after a 1997 jury trial.
Lawyer Susan Iannitelli says the contempt sentence is "excessive."
