Man Found Not Guilty, Mentally Ill in Grandmother's Death
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that St. Clair County Associate Judge Vince Lopinot returned the verdict Tuesday against 25-year-old Logan Dyjak of Belleville.
Dyjak was accused of killing 66-year-old Judith Bauer in the family home several hours after she returned from a local hospital where she was being treated for a recent stroke.
Investigators said Bauer had been strangled and stabbed, and there was a puncture wound in her neck.
Police later found Dyjak walking along a Caseyville road, carrying a large knife.
Dyjak now is in the custody of the Illinois Department of Human Services.
