Martinson back in court, additional psych eval requested
Ashlee Martinson, the 17-year-old accused of killing her mother and stepfather, Jennifer and Thomas Ayers, last March, had a court appearance today.
Martinson appeared from the Oneida County Jail via video teleconference, with attorney Amy Ferguson, to request a 75-day extension for the defense to conduct their own psychological evaluation.
The defendant had previously pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.
The court-appointed psychologist’s report was completed and filed earlier this month, but has been sealed by Judge Michael Bloom until further notice.
