THIBODAUX - The man who confessed to killing his disabled son is scheduled to be in court Tuesday for a hearing, WBRZ.com reported Monday.
At the hearing, a judge will determine whether to appoint Jeremiah Wright, 30, an attorney, or if Wright is able to provide his own attorney.
Police say Wright told investigators he decapitated his 7-year-old son, Jori Lirette, Sunday because he did not want to care for the child anymore.
Jori had heart problems and needed a feeding tube.
Police say investigators found evidence Wright had tried to clean up the crime scene, but later placed Jori’s severed head on the sidewalk where it could be seen instead of in a plastic garbage bag where the rest of the body was found.
Wright is being held on a $5 million bond.
