Man sent for psych exam over stabbing death
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Tuesday a judge ordered Jermal Clark to take a psych test.
Clark is facing an open murder charge over the death of Rita Williams of Kalamazoo.
In a previous court hearing detectives say the 28-year-old confessed to the stabbing.
Detectives say they were called to Williams' home on October 6th after getting a 911 hang up call.
When officers arrived they found the 52-year-old's body in the basement.
It was Williams' daughter who told police that her mother had been in the house with Jermal Clark.
Clark's family members tell Newschannel 3 he has a history of mental illness.
Clark was originally scheduled for a preliminary hearing Tuesday, but that was postponed until the psych test can be completed.
