JESSUP, MD - A former Baltimore college student who told investigators he killed a man and ate his heart and brains may never stand trial.
Alexander Kinyua faces first-degree murder charges. He garnered the attention of law enforcement officials after his brother reportedly found human remains in the family’s home.
Kinyua is suspected of killing his roommate, Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie. Agyei-Kodie was reported missing after he left home to go for a run and never returned.
Investigators say parts of his body were found in the home in Joppatowne, MD and in a nearby dumpster.
In a recent letter to attorneys, the judge in the case stated Clifton T. Perkins Hospital, where Kinyua is currently held, ruled Kinyua was not competent to stand trial. The judge suggested that unless there was evidence to dispute the finding by the hospital, the case would be postponed.
Attorneys for both sides of the case have reportedly agreed, and Kinyua is not expected to face a judge unless enough progress is made in his treatment that the hospital changes its stance on his evaluation.
