WARREN, Ohio. (WKBN) – A Southington man found guilty in the 2012 shooting and stabbing death of his wife will spend the rest of his life in a mental hospital.
According to the Tribune Chronicle, a hearing was held Tuesday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court where Judge Andrew Logan committed Royce Honaker, 64, to the Heartland Behavioral Healthcare in Massillon where he has been committed since his trial.
Honaker shot and stabbed his 40-year-old wife saying he believed she was working for the FBI to poison him.
It took more than three years for the case to be completed, because, at first, Honaker was not competent to stand trial.
