Insanity plea in attack that killed LP man

FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — A Wisconsin man is pleading not guilty by reason of insanity in a stabbing attack that left a La Porte man dead and another injured at a service plaza on the Ohio Turnpike. Thomas Conner, 51, of Beloit, earlier this month pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder, attempted murder and felonious assault. However, his lawyer has amended the plea. He will be evaluated at a court treatment center and remain in custody until a competency hearing.
