STAMFORD, Conn. (Stamford Advocate) -- The 22-year-old Wilton man accused of beating and stabbing his father to death earlier this month asked for a transfer to a high-security prison meant for inmates with mental health issues during a pre-trail hearing Tuesday.
Aaron Ramsey, of 125 Signal Hill Road, is being held on $1 million bond at Bridgeport Correctional Center on charges of killing his 73-year-old father, Edward Ramsey, on Thursday, May 3, at their home. His public defender, Howard Ehring, asked for the prison change along with a request for a mental competency exam that will determine whether Ramsey can stand trial at state Superior Court in Stamford.
Judge Richard Comerford scheduled the next court appearance for June 8 and ordered Ramsey be placed on suicide watch. He asked the Department of Corrections to give Ramsey medical and psychiatric attention and to consider the recommendation for a transfer to Garner Correctional Institute in Newtown.
