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.
