Pennsylvania school stabbing suspect seeks transfer to mental facility

By Elizabeth Daley PITTSBURGH (Reuters) – Lawyers for a teenager charged with wounding 21 people in a stabbing spree at his Pittsburgh-area high school in April have asked that he be moved from a juvenile detention hall to a mental health facility at the county’s expense. Doctors who have examined 16-year-old Alex Hribal since his arrest have diagnosed him as suffering from a major depressive disorder and a “schizoid/schizotypal” personality disorder, his lawyer said in the transfer request filed in court on Friday. Authorities say Hribal rampaged through Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania, on April 9 armed with two 8-inch kitchen knives, stabbing and slashing 20 fellow students and a security guard before he was subdued by an assistant principal.
