Psych evaluation for teen accused in baby girl’s murder
The 17-year-old boy charged with the murder of 15-month-old Racquel George was ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation when he appeared in the Fyzabad Children’s Court on Wednesday.
The matter was adjourned to May 14, 2018, pending a psychiatric evaluation of the accused.
Baby Racquel, from Oil Field Road, Palo Seco, was discovered unresponsive by her mother around 9 pm last Wednesday.
The child was taken to the Siparia Health Facility, where she was pronounced dead.
An autopsy conducted a day later revealed the cause of death to be blunt cranio-cerebral trauma and multiple blunt traumatic injuries.
Investigations were supervised by Insp. (Ag.) Allister Jones and Sgt. (Ag.) Randy Ramjag, of Homicide Bureau of Investigations, Region 3, while the minor was charged by PC Linton Latchman on Tuesday.
