Markeith Loyd rants in the courtroom, claims deceased ex-girlfriend set him up

Accused killer Markeith Loyd appeared in court on Tuesday afternoon.

Police say that Loyd killed his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, as well as Orlando Police Lieutenant Debra Clayton. 

In court, Loyd went on a rant where admitted that he understands anything he says can be used against him at trial.

"From the very beginning, they've been reporting lies," Loyd said on the record in open court.  "I tried to turn myself in three different times after the situation, and you see the results of the third time."

Loyd was referring to the night he was captured after running from police for weeks.  Investigators say Loyd's eye was injured, when he refused to obey commands.  

Attorneys were scheduled to argue whether the two murder cases the state has against Loyd should be tried together, which is what the defense prefers.  However, before that could even be discussed, Loyd's attorney filed a motion in open court, asking the judge for Loyd to undergo a competency examination. Attorney Terence Lenamon told the court that he thought one was necessary after a discussion he had at the jail with Loyd on Monday.  Loyd made it clear, he is not on board.  

"I ain't talking to anybody! I ain't crazy!" Loyd said.

At one point, after receiving permission from the judge to talk, Loyd faced Sade Dixon's parents and addressed them directly.  

"I'm not going to be doing that to my queen.  I was sleeping in my car, so she could stay focused on school," Loyd said.  "The stuff that happened that day didn't need to happen." 

After the state's objection to Loyd addressing Dixon's parents, the judge told Loyd he needed to address the bench. Loyd then tried to blame Dixon's death on Dixon herself.  

"She done pulled the gun on me already, and I took her gun.  I know they hurt.  I hurt.  It wasn't my fault," Loyd said. 

For now, the proceedings are on hold until a doctor rules whether Loyd is competent to proceed with his cases.   The first trial is set for September.
