A man convicted of killing two people in Lincoln is asking a Lancaster County District judge to throw out his life sentences, saying he was too heavily medicated on anti-psychotic drugs to be competent to stand trial.
Todd Baker wants to present evidenced he says will show that his convictions were unconstitutional. The 49-year-old was convicted in 2006 in the 1996 killing of Anne True after Baker's ex-wife went to police with information in the case. In 2007, while already serving a life sentence for True's death, Baker was convicted of killing 15-year-old Missy Schmidt.
Police say Baker randomly attacked both victims with a hammer and dumped their bodies in rural ditches.
