Feb. 14 preliminary hearing set for man who planned "Breaking Dawn" shooting in Bolivar

A Feb. 14 preliminary hearing has been scheduled in Polk County Circuit Court for Blaec Lammers, 20, who allegedly plotted a murder spree at a showing of the movie "Breaking Dawn" in Bolivar in November.

The hearing was originally scheduled for Jan. 23.

Online court records indicate a mental evaluation has been filed and that the judge rejected an attempt by the Springfield News-Leader to gain access to the evaluation.

Lammers, who faces charges of making a terroristic threat, armed criminal action, and assault in the first degree, is being held in the Polk County Jail, with bond set at $500,000. He is being represented by public defender Dewayne Franklin Perry.

Sad, bad deal. Blunt is right, the mental health issue is a critical part of our safety.

This guy has had lots of problems and his parents could help him when he was younger. Don't know if they did or not but when they get older and bigger with these issues, anything can happen.

What's the answer?
