NGI Defense Progresses in Local Homicide Case

by Gamino Law Offices on 06/13/13

One of the big issues in the case where a local veteran stalked, shot and killed his police officer wife, including using her own service firearm to shoot her, is whether he suffers from a mental disease or defect sufficient to avoid criminal responsibility for his actions.  A report by a court appointed local psychiatrist does not support the NGI plea, indicating that the shooter did not lack the necessary capacity to understand his actions were wrong.  The defense still has an opportunity to present a favorable report from an expert of their choosing which could support the plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.
