NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The lawyer for the suspect in the stabbing during a Chanukah celebration in Monsey has requested a federal competency evaluation.

Attorney Michael Sussman says a psychiatrist concluded that Grafton Thomas is not competent to stand trial.

Now the U.S. Attorney’s office has two weeks to respond.

Thomas has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges in the Dec. 28th stabbing that left five people injured at a rabbi’s home.

The 37-year-old also faces federal hate crime charges.

  1. Edward Branca says:

    The Hassidic jews don’t want to play by society’s rules or to obey the laws. They think of themselves as better than other people. The Hassidic jews think that they are the master race.

    The problem with the jews is that they only care about their money. That is why the jews got gassed to death in Europe during the second World War. If the jews here continue to be greedy, they’ll be gassed to death here.
