Mental evaluation ordered for alleged burglar, robber
KINGMAN – One of three men facing multiple felonies for alleged participation in a number of burglaries and robberies throughout the area, Preston Earl Milks, has indicated he is interested in taking a plea deal.
Milks was in court Monday for pretrial conferences in five cases in which the state alleges he participated in five burglaries and robberies between December 2017 and April 2018. Those include reported incidents on April 12, 2018, March 10, 2018, Feb. 4, 2018, Jan. 1, 2018 and Dec. 24 2017. Anthony Scott Axton and Francis William Allison also face charges related to burglaries and robberies throughout the Kingman area.
Milks’ attorney, Adam Cirzan, told Judge Billy Sipe that his client has completed a pre-Rule 11 evaluation. That evaluation found there are “reasonable grounds” to conduct a full Rule 11 evaluation, which deals with examining a defendant’s mental competency to understand their case.
Cirzan also said his client is interested in taking a plea deal offered by the state. The details of that deal were not discussed Monday.
The judge said the process could take around a month to complete before continuing the pretrial conference to 10 a.m. May 20.
