The lawyer for a Paradise man found guilty of second-degree murder and attempted murder says a thorough psychological assessment of Steven Neville should be considered by the judge before sentencing.
Neville, 22, was convicted last month of murdering Doug Flynn and trying to kill Ryan Dwyer in Paradise in October 2010.
On Friday, defence lawyer Peter Ralph presented the results of a neuropsychological assessment of Neville in 2010.
The report concluded his intelligence quotient, or IQ, was between 68 and 72, which is well below normal.
The assessment put Neville's educational level at roughly grade 4.6, although he did graduate from high school.
The report said Neville's IQ was so low, he was unable to hold onto jobs at Wendy's or Tim Horton's.
Not linked to stabbings
The assessment was done after the stabbings in Paradise, but was not related to the incident.
It had been arranged before that because of Neville's earlier brushes with the law.
The sentencing hearing was supposed to take place Friday, but the defence asked for a delay so that it could ask the psychologist to testify.
The hearing has been rescheduled for Tuesday.
