PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Two psychiatrists say a Rhode Island man was having a psychotic break when he fatally stabbed one woman and wounded two others.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2h5yP5p ) the psychiatrists testified this week during the trial for 36-year-old David Allison.

Prosecutors say the Providence man broke into the home of 26-year-old Maria Feliciano and stabbed her, her 24-year-old sister Elba Feliciano and 29-year-old Adrianna Figueroa. Elba Feliciano died and the other two were injured.

Allison has pleaded not guilty to murder, burglary and felony assault charges for the September 2015 stabbing.

One psychiatrist testified Allison is a danger to himself and others without proper supervision and medication.



Allison’s lawyer told the judge his client should be found not guilty by reason of insanity.
