An ex-convict charged with killing his father at an Easter Sunday church service in Ohio made rambling comments during an appearance in court and the prosecutor requested a psychiatric evaluation.

The suspect, 25-year-old Reshad Riddle, appeared Monday afternoon in Ashtabula (ash-tuh-BYOO'-luh) Municipal Court in an orange jail jumpsuit with his ankles and wrists in chains.

The bearded Riddle made rambling comments about God and said he wanted to be treated fairly. The prosecutor asked for $1 million bail and, if he makes it, a psychiatric evaluation and 24-hour monitoring.

No plea was entered on an aggravated murder charge and two weapons counts.

Police say he went to the church and killed his father, 52-year-old Richard Riddle, with a single shot from a handgun Sunday afternoon. Worshippers fled in panic.
