HOUSTON (AP) — A 23-year-old man has pleaded guilty to attempted capital murder for a 2013 stabbing rampage on a Houston-area community college campus that wounded 14 people.
Dylan Andrew Quick also pleaded guilty to two aggravated assault counts. State District Judge Maria Jackson could sentence Quick to anything from probation to life imprisonment when he's sentenced Oct. 29. Quick remains jailed without bond.
Quick was accused of stabbing and slashing more than a dozen people with a scalpel and X-Acto knife in an April 9, 2013, rampage on the Lone Star College-Cy Fair campus.
Quick was born deaf. His attorneys contend he has had problems developing social skills as a result. They also say he has been diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder since his arrest. They are asking for probation.
