The man awaiting trial in the shooting death of the Rainier police chief was in court Wednesday in St. Helens for refusing treatment for a self-inflicted head wound.

Lawyers for Daniel Butts of Kalama asked a judge to address concerns over his medical situation.

KGW reports (http://is.gd/j7wgf4) Butts stabbed himself in the head on March 22 in the Columbia County Jail and refused hospital treatment for the wound, which became infected. The judge set a timetable to address the issue.

Butts has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder in the January 2011 shooting of Rainier Police Chief Ralph Painter who had responded to a report of a suspicious person at a car stereo shop.
