PORT ANGELES — The man accused of killing a Clallam County sheriff’s deputy last August has been ordered to undergo another round of psychiatric evaluation.
Thomas Martin Roberts, 54, faces a charge of first-degree aggravated murder in the shooting death of Deputy Wally Davis last August.
Roberts allegedly shot Davis on Aug. 5, then kept law enforcers at bay for 25 hours. He was arrested the next afternoon after SWAT officers, thinking he was armed and dangerous, fired tear gas into his Ennis Creek Road house.
Superior Court Judge George L. Wood on Monday ordered Roberts back to Western State Hospital in Steilacoom, near Tacoma.
Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Chris Shea said the Sheriff’s Department is scheduled to transport Roberts to the hospital on Wednesday.Details appear in today’s edition of the Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties.
