Report: J’burg man still not fit for trial
Resident, 23, charged in stabbing death of mother
WOODSTOCK – A Johnsburg man accused of killing his mother has been receiving treatment for more than a year but is unlikely to become mentally competent to stand trial, according to a psychiatrist's report.
Raymond E. Davis, 23, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the stabbing death of Carol Schritz, 58, in November 2011 at her home in the Pistakee Highlands area near Johnsburg. Schritz suffered a single stab wound to her right upper chest.
On Wednesday, a hearing was held regarding Davis' mental fitness, which includes his ability to understand the charges against him and assist in his defense. Insanity is a separate issue dealing with whether defendants are able to tell the difference between right and wrong while committing a crime.
