Andrew Downs' appearance significantly altered

Andrew Downs appeared in court Thursday morning with a shaved head and an orange jumpsuit. He also seemed much more alert during the proceedings than usual.

In previous court appearancex Downs had long hair and wore a black and white striped jumpsuit. He would also often sit with his head down, and appeared lethargic.

Thursday morning, the release of a third doctor's reports on Andrew Downs' mental competency was delayed until next week.

The 20-year-old is the only suspect in a double homicide that happened back on Christmas Day in Santa Margarita.

Two doctors came back with mixed findings on whether he is competent to stand trial. Downs reportedly suffers from schizoprenia.

Thursday's court hearing has been delayed until the morning of Thursday, March 3rd.
