HOUSTON (AP) -- An attorney for a man accused of stabbing more than a dozen people at a Houston-area college says his client is on suicide watch.

Jules Laird, a lawyer for Dylan Quick, says Quick will remain jailed without bond so he can continue a psychological evaluation.

Laird says he doesn't know enough about Quick's mental state to discuss it further. He says he's still working to find out more about Quick's mental health history.

Harris County authorities have said Quick told them he had been fantasizing for years about stabbing people.

At Laird's request, Quick did not appear at brief court hearing Thursday in Houston.

Quick is charged with three counts of aggravated assault for the attack at Lone Star Community College in Cypress earlier this week.
