Delay In Alleged Murder Case On Paloma CEO’s Estate

Jan 27 2010 | 3:36am ET

The landscaper accused of murdering his daughter on a Greenwich, Conn., hedge fund manager’s estate last month has had his plea delayed again after his lawyer said Adam Dobrzanski required immediate psychiatric attention.

Howard Ehring, who represents Dobrzanski, sought to enter a not guilty plea on behalf of his client, who has not spoken at either of his court appearances. But Ehring also asked for “further evaluation” before he discussed a probable cause hearing with his client.

Probable cause hearings determine whether there is sufficient evidence to proceed with the charges.

Judge Richard Comerford in Stamford, Conn., set a Feb. 16 court date to consider the issues, giving time for Dobrzanski’s psychiatric evaluation to be completed. Dobrzanski remains held on $1 million bail.

According to police, Dobrzanski killed his 20-year-old daughter Amanda and then tried to kill himself on Dec. 30 at the estate of Paloma Partners CEO Donald Sussman. It is believed that the 55-year-old Polish native, who was described as having a history of mental illness at yesterday’s court appearance, was upset about his impending divorce from his wife of 28 years, Renata, who works as a live-in cook for the Sussmans and was travelling with them in the Caribbean when her husband allegedly hatched the murder-suicide plot.
