Judge: Mental tests for Philly rape suspect

A judge has ordered mental tests for a West Philadelphia man accused of a series of armed home-invasion rapes and robberies in Philadelphia and Lock Haven, Pa. Twenty-three-year-old Domenique Wilson was arrested in February in Lock Haven after an attack on three Lock Haven University students in central Pennsylvania. Wilson had attended school and played basketball there.

Authorities say DNA and other evidence led them to connect Wilson with three attacks in Philadelphia. One involved two students - a man and a woman - from the University of Pennsylvania. They were bound and gagged, terrorized and robbed, and the woman was raped.

A judge in Philadelphia on Tuesday granted a request by Wilson's attorney for the mental health evaluation.
