ST. HELENS, Ore. (AP) – A grand jury has indicted a man for murder after he was released from the Oregon state mental hospital and accused of killing a woman making a routine medicine delivery to his apartment.
The district attorney’s office in Columbia County announced the indictment Friday. It was dated Thursday.
The 30-year-old suspect, Brent Redd, remained in the hospital with a neck wound.
He’s accused of stabbing Jennifer Warren, who was filling in Sunday on a weekend shift for another worker.
In a previous case, Redd pleaded guilty except for insanity in 2007 when he was accused of trying to kill his mother. A review board found him too dangerous for release in 2009 to a community corrections program but approved the move the next year.
