FILE - In this Nov. 15, 2012, file photo, Pedro Hernandez, right, appears in Manhattan criminal court with his attorney, Harvey Fishbein, in New York. Hernandez confessed in 2012 to killing the long-missing New York City boy, Etan Patz but Hernandez’s defense maintains his confessions are the false imaginings of a man who has an IQ in the lowest 2 percent of the population and has problems discerning reality from fiction. Fishbein - who has handled other murder cases involving psychiatric issues - and the prosecution differ on the extent and implications of Hernandez’s mental problems. Opening statements in Hernandez's trial are set for Friday, Jan. 30, 2015. (AP Photo/Louis Lanzano, Pool, File)
