According to People, Coleman is currently undergoing psychological testing at the federal prison where he is being held in order for authorities to determine if he is mentally fit to stand trial. The alleged murderer is being charged with two counts of foreign murder of United States nationals.

Jennifer Bannon, an FBI special agent stated in the criminal complaint that was filed with the U.S. District Court on Wednesday August 25, that Coleman explained to her that he was "enlightened by QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories and was receiving visions and signs revealing that his wife, A.C., possessed serpent DNA and had passed it on to his children."

The friend who says that he and Coleman used to spend time working out together told PEOPLE that at first the two would simply talk about "the basic stuff you'd expect of a guy with a newborn and a toddler," but things took a turn when he began to bring up the conspiracy theories.

"We're all pretty conservative, and this was not just conservative political talk. This was just out there. Stuff that made zero sense to me," the friend explained.
