An Ada County judge says psychologists can have jailhouse access to a man charged with murder and several other felonies in connection with a knife attack at a Boise apartment complex.

Timmy Kinner, 30, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the stabbing death of three-year-old Ruya Kadir. He's also charged with multiple counts of aggravated battery in connection with the June 30th attack that injured eight others at an apartment complex on Wylie Lane in Boise.

Fourth District Court Magistrate Judge Michael Oths granted a request from Kinner's defense attorneys to allow psychologists visit with the defendant in jail.

On Monday, the judge postponed Kinner's preliminary hearing until Aug. 14.
