FERNLEY, NV - A psychiatric evaluation has been ordered for the suspect in five killings in Fernley and Mustang.

At the request of 25-year-old Jeremiah Bean's public defender Tuesday, a competency evaluation has been ordered. The evaluation will take place at Lake's Crossing in Sparks, and could take months. The ruling was made in Fernley Justice Court.

Bean is accused of first-degree murder in the killings of Robert and Dorothy Pape, Angie Duff, Lester Leiber and Eliazar Graham over a four-day span from May 10 to May 13. He was arrested May 13 after running from a Fernley home after the homeowner arrived.

Prosecutors haven't determined what punishment they want for Bean.
