Psychologist: Monsey Hanukkah stabbing suspect incompetent to stand trial
Grafton Thomas, the man charged with stabbing five people at a Hanukkah party in Monsey in December 2019 is presently incompetent to stand trial.
That's according to the latest evaluation of a psychologist who has been examining and treating Thomas at a federal facility.
According to federal documents, it does not appear Thomas will be ready to stand trial in the foreseeable future.
Thomas was indicted by a federal grand jury and also faces state charges.
One of the victims stabbed, a 72-year-old rabbi, died three months later.
Thomas' lawyer has argued his client is mentally ill and unfit to stand trial.
