Neuropsychiatric Institute, underg
Circuit Court Judge Rosass
Campbell ruled two weeks ago
that Caswell is competent to
stand trial, after hearing testi-
mony to that effect from the
State Forensics Assoc., based on
the observations made while he
,was at Ypsilanti State.
A pre-trial hearing before
Camubell, to set the trial date
and hear any motions, is set
June 2.
According to Caswel's attor-
ney, Raymond Cevinger, the
additional psychiatric tests are
hemn made "to get some more
diagnosis and evaluation." If the
new tests indicate that Caswell
is ill, "we'd want to make a case
that such people should be
treated ...
The charges against Caswell
have not been expanded, partly
because of the questions on his
mental health County Prosecut-
ing Atty. William Delhey indi-
"At the present time," Del-
hey said yesterday, "we'd prob-
ably not expand the charges in
view of the fact that he is in-
stitutionalized. It would serve
no purpose."
However, Delhey left onen the
possibility of prssin additional
charges at a later date.
City Police Chief Walter
Krasny said it is entirely uo to
the proecutor's office whether
the charges will be eoxanded.
Kra'sy declined to discuss de-
tails of Caswell's nossible im-
plication in the other fires, say-
ing "there's evidence that would
lead you to believe" he is impli-
cated in some of the other cases
of arson.
Krasny did -say, however,
that "whether there's enough
evidence to take into court, I
wouldn't know."
The series of fires on campus
last winter caused "over $5,000"
In damage, Krasny said.
The arson incidents began
in mid-January and grew in fre-
quency and intensity throughout
the next month - and - a - half.
About a dozen campus buildings
were arson targets.
