STUART, Fla. (AP) - The Florida college student accused of randomly killing a couple and chewing on the dead man's face wrote in court documents about being bullied, dealing with anxiety and accepting his death.

The Palm Beach Post reports more than 100 pages of Austin Harrouff's writing were released by the State Attorney's Office along with hundreds of other documents inside the discovery file made public Wednesday.

The 19-year-old Harrouff had a trace amount of marijuana in his system when he allegedly beat and stabbed John Stevens, 59, and his 53-year-old wife, Michelle Mishcon, outside their Tequesta-area home Aug. 15, according to the report.

He's charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

The files, which are titled "journal" by investigators, appear to include at least one school project.
