Mental Health Evaluations Ordered For Man Accused In 2-Year-Old’s Death

A judge ordered two psychiatric evaluations for a man accused of a killing a two-year-old girl.
Police say Christopher Grimmett admitted to beating to death his then-girlfriend’s’ daughter, Adalin Stamper, while he was babysitting the little girl Nov. 11.
Grimmett allegedly then buried Stamper’s body in the backyard of his brother’s house at 1835 Sue Avenue, Warsaw. He was arrested within hours of the girl’s death.
Stamper died from blunt force trauma.
Kosciusko Circuit Court Judge Michael Reed issued the order for evaluations this morning.
The order was  issued after a closed door hearing held  Monday.
The order calls for two evaluations that will be chosen by the Bowen Center for Human Services.
The evaluations will look at two issues: First, whether Grimmett had the ability at the time of the alleged events to appreciate the wrongfulness of conduct. Secondly,  whether Grimmett is capable of standing trial.
No date for the evaluations have been set.
A new court date has not been scheduled in at this point.
Grimmett is currently being held in the Kosciusko County Jail on a charge of murder with no bond.
