Third psych report for Grossmith

It was anticipated that a trial date would be set in the case of a young man who killed his mother a year and a half ago, but more delays have slowed the judicial process.

The court heard that a doctor in the Lower Mainland is still in the process of writing a psychiatric report on Conor Grossmith. This will be the third such report to be authored since his incarceration, following the incident in September 2012.

Grossmith is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Kate Gilchrist, who died a few days after being attacked with a hammer on Sept. 13.

Once the case goes to trial, it’s possible that three different psychiatrists could give testimony on Grossmith’s cognitive abilities.

He was initially held at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam for a period of time following his arrest, but has since been transferred to the Kamloops Regional Correctional Facility.

The matter has been adjourned until later this month.
