Murder suspect to be given mental health evaluation
3 months, 3 weeks ago
The preliminary hearing for a Quincy murder suspect has been put on hold while his mental health is examined.
The attorney for Vincent Carter, Public Defender Holly Henze, has requested to have him examined by a psychologist to see if he’s mentally fit to stand trial.
During Carter’s first court appearance on January 7, he acted like he didn’t understand why he was in the courtroom.
Carter’s preliminary hearing was set for Wednesday. He is to be examined by Frank Froman with a report due to Judge Scott Walden by February 13.
Carter is charged with first degree murder in the January 3 fatal shooting of Terry Williams in an apartment complex at 219 S. 11th.
