BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The man accused of killing two people at the Grady Crawford Construction Company back in December 2009 will be getting a psychological evaluation. Richard Matthews is charged with two counts of first degree murder.

Greg Matthews will face three psychiatrists as they try to determine if Matthews can assist in his own defense. Judge Tony Marabella ordered the panel after the prosecution requested the evaluation. Defense attorneys objected but to no avail.

"The case needs to get moved along. There are possibly sanity issues. In order not to delay the case any longer were asking for a sanity hearing; let someone look at him, evaluate him, make sure he can assist his counsel and proceed with the trial," said District Attorney Hillar Moore.

Matthews has confessed several times on camera to killing two people in 2009, saying he killed the wrong people. The two women killed were secretaries at Grady Crawford Construction.

The judge ordered Matthews back in court on April 5, 2013.
