A 66-year-old man who was found to be insane when he beat his roommate and the victim’s 4-year-old son to death in Morris Plains in 1974 must continue to be closely monitored in a locked ward at Ancora Psychiatric Hospital, a judge ruled Thursday.
Superior Court Judge Salem Vincent Ahto, sitting
in Morristown, reviewed the progress of killer William Douglas Enman
and determined that he continues to suffer from a major mental
illness, primarily schizophrenia, but refuses to be medicated and
believes he is emotionally healthy.
“He does not believe he has a mental illness,” Ahto said of Enman, who used a billy club in 1974 to bludgeon roommate Peter LeSueur, 27, and LeSueur’s 4-year-old son, Eric, while they slept.
By law, a person who is found not guilty by reason of insanity of a crime and is institutionalized must be periodically reviewed by a judge who hears psychiatric testimony about his or her progress and whether the person poses a danger to himself or others. Ahto heard Thursday from Ancora forensic psychiatrist Dr. Babatunde Adetunji, who said that Enman is resistant to psychotropic medications.
