In Wesleyan Student’s Killing, Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity

Posted By: wbhazel1 on December 11, 2011 at 7:19 am

This article shared by The Associated Press and published in The New York Times speaks to an interesting story of a Massachusettes man who stalked and killed a Connectuct Coed and the resulting trial which led to a Not Guilty by reason of Insanity. This case was just upheld on an applellate division court and it looks like the accused will now be committed to an institution for the criminally insane. The key point in the trial and subsequent appeals were that the accused could NOT conform his actions to the rules of law.For all of the fans of forensic behavioral health you can pretty much rely on these decisions as the guidelines and basis to be followed in subsequent legal actions. Please enjoy the article.
