ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Attorneys for the man accused of killing five people in the Capital Gazette newsroom in Maryland say the plaintiffs have not provided sufficient factual data to which the charges against their client, they weigh changing his plea to not criminally responsible due to insanity.
But a prosecutor told a judge Thursday that the state has provided information about the essential elements of the case against Jarrod Ramos, and there will be no surprises in the process.
Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Laura Ripken says that she will take her decision on the defence request for more details on March 11. The defense has a March 15 deadline to change Ramos’ plea of not guilty.
Ramos faces 23 charges relating to the five people who died, as well as six other victims.
