Email News Alerts

A man charged in a botched suicide attempt Dec. 27 in which two local officers were injured is to undergo a mental evaluation.

"He's competent now," said public defender Jennifer Nelson of her client, Bradley James Ellison, 52.


"I don't believe he was competent at the time of the offense," she told Judge Robert Tiffany last week. "He doesn't recall the incident."
