A hearing was held today for the former Notre Dame assistant football coach accused of striking his wife and holding her hostage in their Granger home last summer.
A judge says the psychiatrist and psychologist who examined Corwin Brown concerning his mental status came up with differing opinions.
Brown faces charges of confinement and domestic battery against his wife from the August 12, 2011 incident, which led to a seven-hour standoff with police that ended when he shot himself in the abdomen.
In January, a judge appointed the two doctors to evaluate Brown's mental state, while he continued counseling and treatment in Chicago.
Newscenter16 learned today that their reports came back with a "split of opinion", but the details of their findings have not yet been released.
Brown's family believes his actions might stem from brain trauma he suffered when he was an NFL defensive back.
A status hearing is scheduled for June 28, 2012.
