The psychological examination of the landscaper who allegedly killed his daughter at a hedge fund manager's Greenwich, Conn., mansion has been completed, his lawyer said.
Adam Dobrzanski was arrested on Dec. 30, 2009, and charged with the brutal slaying of his 20-year-old daughter, Amanda, apparently as part of a murder-suicide plot. But despite stabbing himself several times, Dobrzanski survived the event, which took place in his apartment at Paloma Partners CEO Donald Sussman's home.
Dobrzanski, a live-in gardener for the Sussmans, has pleaded not guilty, although his attorney, Howard Ehring, has frequently called into question both his client's overall mental health and his metal well-being on the night of his daughter's death. Dobrzanski has had at least one outburst in court, shouting mostly in his native Polish when being led back to his cell.
At a hearing last week, Ehring asked for a continuance until Feb. 4, to give him time to get copies of Dobrzanski's psychological evaluation both to prosecutors and to his client.
"At that date, we will certainly have an opportunity to sit down and discuss the different avenues toward resolution in this case," he said.
Ehring said that he has a hard copy of the report, by forensic psychiatrist Justin Schechter. Schechter has been working with Dobrzanski since shortly after his arrest.
