Man convicted in ND killings blames his defense

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man convicted of killing two children on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation in North Dakota has filed court documents on his own claiming he was not mentally fit to stand trial. He's asking to be released from prison.

A jury in September found Valentino "Tino'' Bagola guilty of two counts of felony murder for the May 2011 slayings of 9-year-old Destiny Jane Shaw-Dubois and her 6-year-old brother, Travis Lee DuBois Jr., in St. Michael.

Bagola says in a handwritten document that he should have had an evaluation to determine whether he was competent to stand trial and assist in his own defense.

Neil Fulton with the public federal defender's office in the Dakotas says defense attorneys have not reviewed Bagola's documents but continue to work with him.
