HOUSTON (FOX 26) - The admitted Santa Fe High School shooter may be seeking an insanity defense against the capital murder charges in last year's massacre.
Dimitrios Pagourtzis is accused of killing eight students and two teachers, and injuring 13 others in the May 18, 2018 shooting.
TIMELINE: What happened that horrific day
Court documents filed on June 6 will allow prosecutors to evaluate Pagourtzis by their own experts.
“As the Defendant has indicated that he intends to raise the Insanity Defense in this Capital Murder trial, and as law mandates that the State do more than just rely on cross-examination of the defense experts on the issue of Insanity, the State is therefore entitled to have its own experts interview, test, and examine the Defendant for the determination of whether or not the Defendant was insane at the time of the offense,” the order states.
Pagourtzis' defense attorneys said his mental evaluations are continuing.
The judge overseeing the trial has decided to move the trial out of Galveston County.
At 2 p.m. Friday, Judge John Ellisor is set to announce where the trial will be held.
