The man accused of killing three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic says he’s guilty and that he’s a “warrior for the babies.”

Robert Lewis Dear made the comments Wednesday during a court hearing for prosecutors to announce charges filed against him.

The 57-year-old said he was guilty and that there will be no trial.  He also objected to his attorney’s attempts to limit publicity in his case.

In court, Robert Dear said the state public defender’s office wants to seal documents and limit discussion of his case to hide what he saw inside the clinic.

Dear shouted, “You’ll never know what I saw in that clinic. Atrocities. The babies. That’s what they want to seal.”

Dear noted that his attorney also represented Colorado theater shooter James Holmes. He says attorney Daniel King “drugged” Holmes, and “he wants to do that to me.”

King questioned whether Dear was competent to stand trial.

Three people were killed in the Nov. 27 shootings — two civilians and a campus police officer who responded to the gunfire. Nine people were wounded, including five other officers.
