An attorney for Raymond Walters entered the plea Thursday to 22 charges including murder. The Dayton Daily News reports the attorney also requested a mental health evaluation for Walters.

Police say Walters in August stabbed his father in a pickup truck, stole a police car and crashed the cruiser in downtown Dayton, hitting a minivan filled with children.

Two girls were killed and nine others were injured.

Police have said Walters' father was taking him to a hospital for mental health treatment when Walters stabbed his father.

Walters had recently been paroled on a robbery conviction. A message seeking comment was left for his public defender.
