Aaron Ramsey found not guilty by three-judge panel

Aaron Ramsey, the Wilton man accused of bludgeoning his father to death on May 3, was found not guilty of murder, third-degree burglary and third-degree larceny for reasons of mental disease or defect on Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 12, at Stamford Superior Court.

He had been living with his father, Edward Ramsey, 73, at their home at 125 Signal Hill Road at the time of the May 3 attack, in which Edward Ramsey was bludgeoned to death with a bench and found stabbed repeatedly with a knife.

Aaron Ramsey was discovered on the property of a neighbor shortly thereafter, "covered in blood," according to on-duty Wilton Police Sgt. Thomas Tunney.

On Nov. 20, accompanied by public defender Howard Ehring, Mr. Ramsey entered his plea of not guilty in front of a three-judge panel at Stamford Superior Court.

Mr. Ramsey has been residing at Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown since the issuance of a "physician's emergency certificate" from Bridgeport Hospital on Sept. 20.
