Man deemed incompetent to stand trial for attack on two Elliot Hospital employees
"It is my opinion he is not presently competent to stand trial, but there is a high likelihood he may be restored to competency," Comiskey testified.
He said Kinglocke had no prior psychiatric events until he experienced an "episode of psychosis" and was brought to the hospital by police on July 8.
Comiskey did not say exactly what it was Kinglocke suffered from, but said he had a psychotic break and was not treated for it in the three days he was locked inside the hospital psychiatric area waiting for a room at the state hospital in Concord.
Comiskey said a mental health defense would be appropriate in Kinglocke's case but at this time, he did not believe Kinglocke understood the consequences of such a defense.
Kinglocke is accused of attacking two Elliot Hospital employees in the emergency room on July 8. Licensed Nursing Assistant Donald Wyman was hospitalized for weeks at Massachusetts General Hospital after Kinglocke allegedly broke his jaw in four places and knocked out four of his teeth.
Kinglocke also is accused of punching nursing assistant Melissa Clermont in the face, fracturing her cheekbone, after she found Wyman face down on the floor and Kinglocke with Wyman's employee ID/keycard trying to get out of the locked psychiatric area.
"This is a terrible tragedy for everybody involved," he said. McDonough said he hopes this case and others will shine a light on how mental health is being treated in New Hampshire.
