Trial is pushed back for a man accused of homicide because of concerns over his mental health.
This morning, a judge ruled to continue the Joseph Oberlander trial that was scheduled to begin on Monday. This coming after Oberlander’s attorney says a psychiatrist determined he suffers from schizophrenia.
He is charged with stabbing and killing 32-year-old John Trusty in December 2016. The victim was found unresponsive in a hallway in the Granada Apartment Complex. The judge is waiting on the psychiatrist’s report to determine if Oberlander is fit to stand trial.
