A man accused of killing his girlfriend by stabbing her 34 times in the neck may plead insanity in his case.

Theodis Keys Jr., 33, appeared for a brief hearing in Erie County Common Pleas Court Tuesday with his attorney, public defender Jeff Whitacre.

Keys was arrested Oct. 17 when he turned himself into the sheriff's office, only hours after Lorie Miller's son discovered her body in the bathroom of her Follett Street home.

For more on the impending plea change, pick up a copy of Wednesday's Register.

insanity? but he's fine now right?

wiredmama222

exactly. Quick recovery

my oh my

He wasn't insane when he was living there with her was he?

Another 5 yrs to prosecute. Then another 30 yrs for appeals. Then he'll be too fat to kill.

wiredmama222

it will take that long to get a doctor to write a report on his sanity level. Remember how long it took to get the one on Randleman? How many times did they have to postpone before they got that one? And they took a plea anyway? Want to bet this goes as that one did?

insanity should not even be an option for somebody who murders another person, insane or not, they deserve to be put down for the heinous act

Sounds like our society needs a little insanity and put this man down.

The lack of ears would cause any man to go insane

Somebody is messing with the camera's settings or the software to develop them. Not everyone has an egg/watermelon shaped head with no ears. It's the cops or the paper. Look at all the latest mug shots and tell me if I'm wrong.

Nobody tampered with anything ,he just has big jaw line, if he tilts his head down you can see his ears.

shucks

Gallagher will be his executioner.

Looks like someone took a scissors and cut out his head. Then just pasted it on the shirt.

I believe they are taking the photos that way so it is easier to ID a person in their data base. They scan the criminals photo against 100s of mug shots/sec. It kicks out the ones that don't match the general shape of head,etc.... I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure it is the reason.

This is nothing more than a waste of taxpayer dollars prolonging the outcome of a guilty verdict. This is the same thing that happened when my friend was mudered in huron county almost 8 years ago. That idiot went through 2 pscycological evaluations...that we paid for...then decided to plead guilty when he couldn't fool the doctors. I am tired of these people getting more rights than the victims.

Pray for all involved in this awful tragedy.

he said she said

Stabbing someone 34 times is rage not insanity. The little trip to the hospital is going to do nothing for him. If he did this to try and convince everyone that he was insane, too bad, so sad, it ain't gonna work, Bub. If he had told them what he had done, the hospital would have called the police and he would have been arrested there. He wouldn't have been able to leave and then turn himself in.
What a freakin joke!!
