In these first two segments, we’re going to learn about Jerrie Mock—and about local artists who helped commemorate the 50th anniversary of her pioneering flight around the world.
Downtown Columbus Stabber Found Not Guilty By Insanity
A man who stabbed four people in a downtown Columbus office building last year has been declared not guilty by reason of insanity.
It’s never been a question of whether or not John Mallett carried several knifes into the lobby of Miami Jacobs Career College and went on a stabbing spree.
But a Franklin County judge today sided with two court psychologists who said Mallett’s severe mental illness kept him from understanding his actions. He’s been committed to a maximum security wing of a West Columbus mental hospital.
Mallett faced multiple charges of attempted murder and felonious assault. He had no known connections to the college or his victims.
