Testing ordered for teen accused in girl's death

PINCKNEYVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- One of three teenagers accused in the July killing of a southern Illinois runaway is undergoing testing to determine whether he's mentally fit to stand trial.

   Fifteen-year-old Robbie Mueller is being prosecuted as an adult in the Perry County killing.
 
   In pressing for a psychiatric evaluation of his client, Mueller's attorney says the teen has been troubled since his father was murdered when he was 4 years old.
 
   Authorities contend Mueller and his co-defendants killed 15-year-old Sidnee Stephens of Pinckneyville in July. The three are jailed without bond. No motive has been given for the slaying.
