WARREN

Attorneys for Patrick Heltzel, 20, of Atlantic Street Northeast, have been granted time to have Heltzel examined to determine whether he was sane when police accused him of killing a 71-year-old man and whether he’s competent to stand trial.

Judge Andrew Logan of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court authorized an evaluation to be conducted.

He scheduled another hearing for July 23 to review the results of the evaluation.

In court Tuesday, Heltzel’s attorneys entered pleas of innocent and innocent by reason of insanity to a murder charge.

Heltzel is accused of killing Milton A. Grumbling III at Grumbling’s house on Kincaid East Road in Warren Township.

Heltzel’s father, Larry, filed a missing-persons report with the Warren Police Department regarding Patrick Heltzel on April 3, saying Patrick had indicated he was “going to kill someone.”

After finding Grumbling’s body April 5, police questioned Patrick by telephone while he was in Greensboro, N.C.

His mother called police shortly afterward to say that Patrick told her he had “stabbed a guy named Milton,” according to an affidavit filed with the court.
