An Ottawa man accused of beating up an elderly Lethbridge woman in her own home last month, will undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
21 year old Adam Hobkirk-Onate was back in court Friday (June 28) appearing via CCTV from the Lethbridge Correctional Centre.
The 30 day psych evaluation will determine if he’s criminally responsible.
Hobkirk-Onate is accused of sneaking into the basement of a 75 year old woman on Fairway Street South, staying there for a day, and then beating her with a bicycle and stealing her vehicle.
He’ll be back in court July 26th.
