Robbie Bishop murder suspect

Prosecutors have re-filed charges against a Spokane Valley man accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend.

Prosecutors say Robbie Bishop stabbed Robin Anderson to death in 2009. She was pregnant with their child.

Bishop admitted to the murders in a jailhouse interview with KXLY but, last year, a judge determined he was not mentally competent to stand trial.

Prosecutors say doctors now believe he is competent, though his attorney objects.

Bishop faces one murder charge and one count of manslaughter for the death of the unborn baby.
