    Daily Oklahoman:

    Suspect in labor commissioner's fatal stabbing said victim was in 'cult,' records show

    ---
    Christian Costello was angry with his parents, blaming them for his court-ordered inpatient treatment at the Crisis Intervention Center, the records show. He claimed he had only been joking around when his brother overheard him talk about the devil. He claimed on Nov. 13 his family was embarrassed because he wanted to act like Bugs Bunny and a Transformer.

    Attorney says son 'very remorseful' in Mark Costello's death

    A defense attorney for a man accused of fatally stabbing his father, Oklahoma's former labor commissioner, said Tuesday that the 27-year-old is "very remorseful" and being examined by a private psychiatrist.
    Chief Public Defender Bob Ravitz said following a court hearing in the case that Christian Costello, who is being held in the Oklahoma County Jail without bond and did not appear in court Tuesday, is doing "the best he can do, considering."
    "It's a real tragic event," Ravitz said of the man. "He's very remorseful."

    Costello's family has said in a statement that he suffers from a mental illness and court records show Costello previously spent 90 days in a mental health facility and taken mood stabilizers. Ravitz declined to reveal whether Costello is taking any medications but said a private psychiatrist is examining him.

    "Because of this tragedy they have him on medication now," Ravitz said. "He's appropriately medicated and he's competent to stand trial"...

    His next court date is scheduled for May 25.

    This is from March.

    Christian Costello Assaulted By Two Inmates At Oklahoma County Jail

    As Costello opened his door to leave his cell for recreation time, the two inmates opened their doors and ran into Costello’s cell. Costello was assaulted there and then dragged out by the two inmates. The assault continued in the recreation area for about a minute.

    Right now, the Sheriff’s office said it is investigating the incident and preparing charges against the two inmates to present to the District Attorney. The names of the two inmates will be released once the report is complete.
    JMO but he shouldn't be in jail anyway.

    Cathy Costello, told News 9 that Christian Costello had been off his medicines, because the jail ran out of those medicines.
