COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -- 57 year old Planned Parenthood shooting suspect Robert Dear is expected to face a judge via video for the first time today.

It`s still not clear what prompted Friday`s six hour standoff that ended with three people being shot and killed and nine others wounded at the clinic, but Dear reportedly talked about "baby parts" after his surrender, and said he has anti-government and anti-abortion views.

Dear does not have a clean record but he's never been convicted of a crime. His wife reportedly accused him of domestic assault in 1997 (she didn't press charges), counts of being a peeping tom were dismissed in 2002, and in 2003, Dear went on trial for animal cruelty charges. He was found not guilty.
