Experts dispute Norway mass killer Breivik's insanity

OSLO, Norway - Three psychologists and a psychiatrist say confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik is not psychotic, contradicting a court-appointed mental evaluation that declared him legally insane.
Norway's TV2 channel reported Wednesday the experts believe Breivik is fit for prison and doesn't belong in psychiatric care. They were appointed by the prison after Breivik was declared insane to find out what possible care he may need in pretrial detention.
The conclusion contrasts with the Nov. 29 finding that said Breivik was insane during the July 22 bomb-and-shooting rampage that killed 77 people.
Prosecutor Svein Holden told TV2 the new information will be sent to the Oslo District Court this week.
It is unclear how the court will react.
