OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — An Oshkosh man accused of bludgeoning a woman to death apparently won’t plead insanity.
Twenty-one-year-old Donald L. Martin is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and armed robbery.
Martin told investigators he attacked the 22-year-old woman with a hammer last year because he was in a rage and needed drugs to feed his addiction.
His jury trial was to begin in April. But a few days before that, his defense attorneys said they found information that raised the possibility of Martin pleading not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.
However, a doctor later reported there was no evidence to support such a plea.
According to an Oshkosh Northwestern report, Martin’s defense attorney said during a hearing Monday she won’t request a second medical examination.
