Rochester Man Accused of Double-Homicide Undergoing Psych Eval
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - An Olmsted County Judge has ordered a psychological evaluation of the man accused of a double-homicide in Rochester earlier this year.
Judge Christina Stevens signed orders this to determine if 53-year-old Glenn Johnson is competent to face prosecution just days after members of the Olmsted County Grand Jury issued an indictment charging him with three counts of first-degree murder for the stabbing deaths of 57-year-old Phillip Hicks and 45-year-old Eric Flemming. The three men were neighbors in the Salvation Army’s Castleview Apartments in downtown Rochester and had been involved in a verbal altercation shortly before the deadly knife attack occurred on March 17th.
The proceedings against Johnson will be on hold until undergoes an evaluation and the court receives a report on his mental status. He is currently being held in the Olmsted County Jail with his bail set at $3-million.
