FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – A prosecution psychiatrist has concluded that a Florida college student was legally insane when he fatally attacked a couple and chewed off the man’s face.

The findings bolster the case of Austin Harrouff’s attorneys.

They are preparing an insanity defense when Harrouff is tried for the 2016 killings of John and Michelle Stevens.

Dr. Gregory Landrum concluded in a report filed this week that Harrouff was so mentally ill when he killed the Stevenses that he did not know right from wrong.

When deputies arrived at the couple’s home, they found Michelle Stevens dead and Harrouff on top of her husband, chewing on his face.
