The state Senate is considering a
bill that adds cigarette "remnants" to
the list of items that are illegal to
throw out of a car.

Anyone caught doing so could face
a fine of 250- to 25- hundred bucks and
up to a year in jail.

Christopher Sterling Jamison was
in court today, as attorneys considered
who should evaluate his mental state-
-both now and at the time of the crime
last November.

County detectives say Jamison
admitted he took the biggest knife he
could find and stabbed the woman who

raised him... first in the back, then
15 times in the chest.

He could not exactly explain why,
except to say he'd "kind of hated her"
his whole life.

Chris Jamison's lawyer says the
boy had been under the care and
treatment of a psychologist for
depression for four months before the
murder.

She wants to know whether he's
mentally ill.
