Of course he is.

Renato Seabra, the model accused of killing and castrating journalist Carlos Castro, may be mentally unstable to stand trial — or at least that's what his lawyer is hoping.

On Friday, Seabra's lawyer David Touger asked the judge for more time to review his client's hospital records to make sure he can stand trial.

Touger also wants Renato's statements he gave to cops to be thrown out because they had no "probable cause" to arrest him. As we mentioned before, those statements include the model's admission to murdering and castrating Castro.

Until the records are reviewed, the 21 year old will remain in the psychiatric hospital jail ward.

On Tuesday, Nicholas Brooks is not going to be charged with attempted murder in the death of girlfriend and designer Sylvie Cachay.

Instead, the 24 year old will be arraigned on second-degree murder charges.

The prosecutors changed their mind after viewing surveillance video from the Soho House, which showed Brooks was the only one to spend a good chunk of time in the hotel room where she was found dead.

They'll also factor in the New York Medical Examiner's report, which ruled that Cachay was in fact murdered by strangulation and drowning.
