Prosecutors say a Philadelphia man charged with threatening a ranking congressman in an Internet video has multiple personalities and cannot defend his case.
A federal magistrate is sending 38-year-old Norman Leboon to a prison hospital in North Carolina for psychiatric testing.
Authorities say he made a video last month threatening Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, the No. 2 House Republican. They say Leboon believes he is the son of God.
Public defender Kai Scott did not challenge the preliminary incompetency finding at a hearing Tuesday. The judge denied her request to have Leboon evaluated in Philadelphia.
Authorities have not linked the video threat to a bullet recently fired through Cantor's campaign office in Richmond.
