In the continuation of a very sad story from last month, St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain says her office will be charging Jose Miranda, a 64-year-old patient at the psych center, in the homicide of fellow patient Robert Harrienger. Time Warner Cable News reports it’s not clear what the exact charges will be.
Rain said Miranda’s back in state prison, where he was serving time for assault prior to being sent to the psych center, for the time being. Miranda has what TWC calls an “extensive felony history” dating to the 1970s.
