A man accused of trying to convince a woman in Angus to drive a car over two infants has appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Andrew Kerr, 34, is also said to have convinced the woman to sit and stand on the youngsters at an address in Arbroath on “various occasions” in June 2018.
Kerr made no plea and his defence solicitor Matthew Berlow raised questions over his fitness to stand trial.
Mr Berlow said: “This is a very unusual case. I will not be entering a plea today.”
Kerr, of John Street, Dunoon, is alleged to have incited the woman to assault the two toddlers by sitting on their heads and bodies between June 17 and 21 2018 at an address in Arbroath.
On the same dates, Kerr is also accused of attempting to incite the same Angus woman to assault the same children by driving a car over them, also at an address in Arbroath.
It is also alleged Kerr tried to convince an Elgin woman of standing or sitting on an unknown child.
That offence is said to have taken place between April 7 and 22 2017.
Kerr is also said to have possessed indecent images, or pseudo images, of children at his home address, RAF Lossiemouth, RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus, and elsewhere between November 27 2012 and July 18 2018.
Kerr also faces charges that he had bestiality images at the same addresses between April 8 2017 and June 5 2018.
The charge states the images depicted in a “explicit and realist way” images of bestiality and “graphic extreme violence”.
And at sometime between November 27 2012 and July 18 2018, Kerr is alleged to “take or permit to be taken” indecent images of children at his home address, RAF Lossiemouth, RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus and elsewhere.
Sheriff Alastair Carmichael continued the first diet to allow the Crown to arrange a medical report.
Kerr is due to appear again at Dundee Sheriff Court on April 14.
