Planned Parenthood had a message for their neighbors, patients and the nation on Sunday in Colorado Springs.

Five months after their clinic was brought under siege by a gunman who called himself "a warrior for the babies" in court, they gathered. After three people died and nine were injured in the Nov. 27 attack, they've rebuilt. After employees left in grief and frustration about being targets for providing women's health services, they came together.

Their message: "We deplore your violence. We reject your threats. We aren't going anywhere."

It's a defiant tribute to the blood spilled by admitted gunman Robert Lewis Dear Jr.

An arrest affidavit said Marmolejo also kept sexually explicit photos of the teen on his computer.

The testimony came during an all-day competency hearing to determine if the case against Dear, 58, should continue or be placed on hold while he is sent for medical treatment.
