Psychiatric evaluation ordered for man on murder charge

A psychiatric evaluation has been ordered for 60 year-old Alexander Page, the man accused of killing 57 year-old Isaiah Atkinson, whose body was found along the Salt Pond main road on January 17.

When Page appeared in the St Catherine Parish Court, before Senior Parish Court Judge Tracey-Ann Johnson he was ordered remanded until February 10, when the matter will again be mentioned.

Things took a peculiar turn however when he started behaving strangely inside the prisoner's dock, stating that "My name is God". 

When asked if he needed a lawyer, he told the court, "I don't need a lawyer, I am an attorney-at-law".

The judge then told him that his mental health will have to be checked.

It is reported that, about 7 a.m. on January 17, residents stumbled upon Atkinson's body, which had stab wounds.

The police were called to the scene.
