Ayers says he tattooed "Sicker Than Most" on his own chest.
The man accused of killing 19-year-old Juliana Mensch in March will go to trial June 25 for first-degree murder. Police say 32-year-old James Ayers drove Mensch's car to a friend's workplace and said he'd strangled Mensch a week earlier; he was arrested at a rehab facility later that day.

Ayers pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Monday, but his lawyer, Harry John Williams Jr., said he believes prosecutors will ask at a hearing tomorrow to have Ayers evaluated to see if he's mentally fit to stand trial.

"At the time this happened, he had a pending charge, and he was out on pretrial release because the court had found him not competent to assist his attorney in his defense," Williams said. "The prosecutors probably going to want a new mental health expert to determine his competency."

A request for comment from the State Attorney's Office was not returned.

He's not insane. The detailed planning played out on facebook, google, and text messaging. He was sane enough to find her money, party, find drugs, eat pancakes, and check himself into rehab to prevent accountability.

i still cannot believe this. she was an awesome person. every time i chilled wit her i had a lot of fun, she was the sweetest girl... sure she had some problems.. who doesn't. no one deserves that. when ever i think about this i get the chills. i believe this man will get what he deserves. i do not believe he should get the death penalty. i think this way because that would almost be lettin him off EASY. he should have to sit in a fuckin cell the rest of his life so he can THINK about what he did. he should have to suffer by never getting to leave that jail. sentencing him to death would just be LUCK for him. so he can just be gone, and not have to deal with anything ever again. therefor, i hope he has to sit miserably in a cell for the rest of his life, get "mentally stable" and realize what the fuck he did and smack himself in the face every time he thinks about what he had done. fuckin asshole

He is insane.  So he needs to be put down.  He can't be healed and he deserves no pity.

first of all if you knew julie you would not be posting on an open forum. if the attorneys are of any intelligence they would have already talked to her friends and family and no one would be commenting, so move along you wanna be friend. oh my oh my . it is a tragedy and lets not make light of it
