Neuroscientist "doesn't know what happened"

The neuroscientist charged with killing three colleagues at the University of Alabama in Huntsville last week does not remember what happened, her lawyer said Friday.

"She just doesn't remember shooting these folks," said the lawyer, Roy W. Miller, of his client, Amy Bishop. "She's very sorry for what she's done."

Though he seemed to be preparing an insanity defense, Miller backed away from a statement to The Associated Press in which he called his client a "paranoid schizophrenic" who "gets at issue with people that she doesn't need to and obsesses on it," saying he had spoken out of turn.

Friday he said he would be engaging one or more psychiatrists to examine Bishop.
