OROVILLE, Calif. -

Another expert is being called in the case of the Butte County man accused of shooting three members of his family and killing one of them.

Robert McClintock's attorney requested the expert to evaluate him for a possible not guilty plea by reason of insanity.

McClintock's criminal proceedings were suspended last week because he wasn't being cooperative with his attorney or investigators.

McClintock is accused of shooting his brother 49-year-old Rodney McClintock and Rodney’s daughter, 12-year-old Chloe McClintock, in their Paradise home back on Labor Day.  Police say he also shot and killed Chloe’s mother, 53-year-old Nancy Taylor.

Judge James Reilly ruled last week that McClintock needed to be evaluated by a psychologist and after Wednesday’s proceedings - an expert will come in and evaluate him.

McClintock is due back in court on October 16 with all of the reports submitted to the judge.  He’s being charged with one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

His bail is set at $5 million.
