MURDER CASE UPDATE
Zack’s Restaurant to be razed Psychiatrist
to stand trial
By BEN BROWN
The Daily Journal
Marcos Escareno, the Manchester boy
charged with murder, has been found com-
petent to stand trial by a second psychiatrist.
He was 14 years old at the time of the shoot-
ing but is being tried as an adult.
In a report presented to the court
Thursday, psychiatrist Dr. Albert Castl
found that Escareno is competent to stand
trial, echoing a report from Forensic
Psychologist Dr. Kevin Kelly.
Psychiatrist Dr. Art Martinez evaluated
Escareno in 2007 and found him to have
expressive receptive disorder and therefore
not competent to stand trial.
Escareno’s lawyer, Katharine Elliott, said
she felt the court should hear arguments on
Escareno’s competency because she
believes he is unable to understand complex
issues and is having difficulty participating
in his own defense.
“I’ve found myself with a growing con-
cern about his ability to communicate,” she
Elliott said she has been contacted by
several community members and local psy-
chiatrists and, based on those contacts, she
now believes that Escareno may have fetal
