CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico judge has ordered that a teenager charged in the Clovis library shooting undergo a mental "evaluation and assessment."

The Eastern New Mexico News reports Fifth Judicial District Judge James Hudson recently ruled that Nathaniel Jouett must go through a treatment plan so the court can address the 17-year-old's mental health.

Hudson denied the transfer motion for Jouett to go to an adolescent treatment facility in Albuquerque.

Jouett will be tried as an adult on charges including first-degree murder. He is accused of killing two people and injuring four at the Clovis-Carver Public Library in late August.

The Associated Press generally does not identify juveniles accused of crimes. It is identifying Jouett, however, because of the seriousness of the crime and because authorities are seeking adult sanctions.
