KOLR-TV reports that Tricia Lammers said Tuesday her 20-year-old son, Blaec, was "born different" and has had inpatient treatment in the past. She spoke to reporters at the National Alliance for Mental Illness in Springfield.

Blaec Lammers, of Bolivar, made a first court appearance Tuesday in Polk County and was ordered to undergo a mental health exam. He is charged with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat and armed criminal action.

His public defender declined comment.

Tricia Lammers says her son asked her recently whether he was a failure. She assured him he wasn't.
