COPY-Ex-Baylor player faces sentencing in teammate's death

WACO, Texas A former Baylor University basketball player who pleaded guilty to killing his teammate two years ago faces five years to life in prison when he is sentenced today in Texas.

Court documents show Carlton Dotson told authorities that he thought people were trying to kill him because "he is Jesus, the son of God."

Part of prosecution's report includes Dotson's confession, in which he said "a higher power told him to talk to the F-B-I" and told authorities where to look for the body of 21-year-old Patrick Dennehy.

Last fall, Dotson was found incompetent to stand trial and sent to a state mental hospital. He was returned to jail in February after a psychologist said Dotson's accounts of hearing voices and seeing things were "suspect." The doctor said Dotson must keep taking anti-psychotic medication.
