Mentally Ill Man Allegedly Kills another Mentally Ill Man
Portland police have charged a man, who’s understood to be of unsound mind, for the murder of another man who’s also believed to be mentally ill.
Last Monday, the body of 37-year-old Kedron Marshall, was found in a barrel with his head bashed in.
The man suspected of the murder, 28-year-old Desmond Bryan was taken into custody the same day after being rescued from angry residents by police. He was shot in the leg during his arrest for allegedly attacking the police with a machete.
Bryan has since been charged for Marshall’s murder. He appeared before the Portland parish court on Tuesday where he was remanded into custody. He’s set to return to court early next year.
The judge also order a psychological assessment on Bryan.
A report is to be presented to the court.
