Edwin Alemany’s lawyer undecided on defense

Cites psychiatric hospitalizations

Edwin J. Alemany’s defense lawyer said Monday that the 28-year-old has a “significant history of psychiatric hospitalizations” but that it is premature to say whether he will use an insanity defense for Alemany, who faces murder and assault charges.

Alemany, who is being evaluated by the state at Bridgewater State Hospital for competency to help with his defense, is due in court Aug. 14 to face charges that he stabbed and strangled Amy Lord and attacked two other women over a 19-hour period in South Boston late last month.
