    U.S. Attorney’s Office files motion to involuntarily medicate man accused of Ashanti Billie’s murder

    SEPTEMBER 12, 2019

    "...According to court documents, the U.S. Attorney’s Office is seeking to restore Eric Brian Brown’s competency to stand trial in Billie’s murder. It requested a hearing on whether or not Brown should be medicated be held no earlier than the first week of November 2019 “in order to provide the parties an adequate opportunity to arrange for expert witness testimony.”

    Since Brown’s arrest, staff at the Butner Federal Medical Center has been working to restore his competency to stand trial. A judge ruled Brown could be involuntarily medicated in June 2018, but at a August 2019 hearing, Brown was still considered incompetent to stand trial.

    The death penalty was taken off the table by the U.S. Attorney General, but if convicted, Brown still faces a mandatory minimum sentence of life in prison."

    New charges filed against man suspected of kidnapping, killing Ashanti Billie

    OCT 04, 2019

    "...In the short term, however, the new indictment handed down Thursday in U.S. District Court in Norfolk will have little practical impact on the case.

    Eric Brian Brown — who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia — remains incompetent to stand trial....

    Following his arrest, state prosecutors filed murder charges against Brown in Charlotte, N.C.

    Brown was subsequently indicted in December on one count each of kidnapping resulting in death, assault resulting in serious bodily injury and theft. The new indictment adds charges of assault with intent to commit aggravated sexual abuse, assault with intent to commit a felony and stalking.

    In court documents, prosecutors have said the “positioning of the victim’s body” and the conditions of the victim’s clothing was “suggestive of sexual assault.”

    If convicted on the kidnapping charge, Brown could have faced the death penalty. Prosecutors, however, announced in August they would instead seek life in prison...."

    It has now been over a week since the car of a college student was found damaged in Montgomery. Aniah Blanchard is still missing, and police are saying they believe foul play is involved.

    Blanchard is the same age as a woman from Maryland named Ashanti Billie, for whom the "Ashanti Alert" was named. It's similar to the amber alert, but used for adults, and Blanchard's case would have applied.

    It's been nearly a year since President Trump signed that bill, but a nationwide system has yet to be set up.

    The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency told WAAY 31 they'll be ready to roll it out as soon as they get word. For now, local parents are reminding their kids about staying safe.

    Inactive nationwide system could've alerted more people about missing Auburn teen

    Aniah's current thread: AL - AL - Aniah Haley Blanchard, 19, Auburn, Lee County, 23 Oct 2019 #3 *Arrest*
