    Medina County rape suspect linked to multiple murders in Ohio, Illinois

    The Ohio Attorney General's Office said Thursday it did not have an update on the status of the investigation.

    Legg was scheduled to appear in court Thursday for a hearing to determine his psychological competency to stand trial, but that hearing was pushed back, pending the results of a psychiatric evaluation.

    Competency hearing held for accused serial killer, rapist Samuel Legg

    May 10, 2019

    "MEDINA — Accused serial killer and rapist Samuel Legg III, who is facing charges in Medina, possibly in Elyria and in Youngstown, was ordered to undergo further psychological treatment in hopes he could one day stand trial.

    Judge Joyce V. Kimbler said Friday at a competency hearing she wants to find out if Legg can assist in his own defense....

    After four months, Legg is expected to return to court to determine if he can stand trial in the rape of a 17-year-old girl on Sept. 7, 1997....

    He said he was not surprised by the judge’s ruling, although he argued that he believed Legg is competent to stand trial.

    “He will be back in court in September to determine competency,” Thompson said....

    Legg is being asked to take another competency evaluation in Mahoning County."

    Samuel Legg III ordered to undergo psychological treatment

    MEDINA, Ohio — Samuel Legg III, an Arizona man who has been extradited back to Northeast Ohio to face charges in connection with a rape from 1997, was ordered to undergo further psychological treatment at his competency hearing Friday morning. An independent psychologist determined Legg, who has also been linked to four homicides in the 1990s, had not responded well to prescription medication and remains psychotic.

    After his competency evaluation, the court adopted a doctor's recommendation for Legg to undergo psychological treatment at Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare for a period not to exceed four months.
    [....]
    This won’t be Legg’s only competency evaluation.

    The judge presiding over Legg’s murder trial in Mahoning County also ordered that he undergo an evaluation, which has not yet been completed. The results of that evaluation can and likely will be used in the Medina County rape case proceedings, Thompson said.


    So - guess his trial won't be starting on 5/28..... for this case.
