Maine man charged with killing, dismembering father ordered to have mental health evaluation

A Maine man charged in the dismemberment death of his father has been ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation at a court appearance where he claimed to be God.

The 24-year-old man also asked the assembled media to following him on Twitter as he left the courtroom Thursday.

A police affidavit says the man told police he recorded at least part of the crime and posted it on YouTube and Twitter, but took the posts down and deleted the video.

The man told police his father had sexually abused him all his life. The Associated Press does not usually identify potential victims of sexual abuse.

Investigators say the man led police to his 56-year-old father's body. The body was contained in at least nine plastic bags.
