LIMA — Judge Jeffrey Reed of Allen County Common Pleas Court took under advisement on Monday a motion from the attorney of a Lima man requesting that his client’s jailhouse confession in the beating of another man not be admitted as evidence in his felonious assault case.
Reed said the case is one of the most “unique” he has heard in his tenure on the bench, in part because the defendant has already been deemed not competent to stand trial.
Travis Worthy, 35, is charged with severely beating Ronald Meola with a nunchaku — a martial arts weapon — at a party at 129 Hillary St. in Lima on May 13.
