COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– The man who confessed to the deadly shooting at the Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs has been deemed incompetent to stand trial.

A judge sent Robert Dear back to the state mental hospital in Pueblo after a hearing on Tuesday. He will be re-evaluated on Nov. 17.

He has been charged with 179 counts, including murder and attempted murder, stemming from the Nov. 27, 2015 shooting at the Colorado Springs clinic that killed three and left nine injured.

He was deemed incompetent after two psychologists testified he has a delusion disorder, which they said keeps him from trusting almost anyone.

Dear told investigators he attacked the clinic because of his anti-abortion stance.
