MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — A Massachusetts man found not guilty by reason of insanity in the 2009 shooting death of a Wesleyan University student heads back to court for a commitment hearing.
Thirty-two-year-old Stephen Morgan is expected to be ordered Wednesday to the state’s maximum security Whiting Forensic Institute.
Morgan, of Marblehead, Mass., was charged with murder and other crimes in the May 2009 death of 21-year-old Johanna Justin-Jinich. The college junior from Timnath, Colo., was shot seven times while working at a bookstore cafe near the liberal arts school in Middletown.
A three-judge panel in December found Morgan to be insane.
