Aubain in court

Local

Naythen Aubain, 29-years-old of Utica, is accused of murdering his 90-year-old grandmother, Katherine Aubain and her 78-year-old landlord, Jane Wentka, inside their Tilden Ave. apartment.

Aubain appeared in court for a status on the psychiatric report. Since he was found competent to stand trial in October, the defense is now trying to determine if he was mentally ill or had a mental defect during the time he allegedly committed the murders.

Adam Tyksinski, Aubain’s public defender, says it has taken a long time to complete the report because they had to wait over a month just to receive reports from other agencies and facilities. Also, the length of the reports are extensive, one being almost 500 pages.

Aubain will appear in court on Wednesday, Jan. 8th, 2020 for a completion date on the psychiatric report.
