I was advised by Gloria Casarez about an upcoming Wednesday July 16 mental competency hearing in the case of Charles N. Sargent, Diamond’s accused killer.
The 44 year old Sargent was arrested for murdering and dismembering Williams last July after luring her to his Strawberry Mansion home.
He faces charges of murder, abuse of a corpse and other related charges to this case. Due to concerns about his mental state, he has not had a preliminary hearing
For those of you in the Philadelphia metro area wishing to attend this hearing in a show of support to for Diamond, her family and the local trans community, it will be held at 9 AM EDT on July 16 in Courtroom 1103 of the Criminal Justice Center, 1301
Filbert St. in Philadelphia. Municipal Court Judge Marsha H. Neifield will preside over the hearing.
Here’s hoping that this is the first step to Sargent being held accountable for his heinous crime and our fallen sister receives justice.
TransGriot Update: Sargent was found COMPETENT to stand trial!
