Rockland County Judge Rules Grafton Thomas Incompetent for Trial in Monsey Stabbings

A Rockland County judge has ruled Grafton Thomas, accused in the 2019 Monsey Channuka stabbings, incompetent to stand trial.

The decision, announced at a recent hearing, postpones the case against Thomas until December next year.

Thomas faces second-degree murder and federal hate crime charges for the attack that resulted in four injuries and the death of Reb Yosef Neumann Z”L.

Currently a patient at Mid-Hudson Psychiatric Center, Thomas has pleaded not guilty. An update on his case is expected next month.

“The Rockland County District Attorney’s Office is committed to getting justice on behalf of Josef Nuemnann, and the others injured during this horrific attack. When the defendant is ruled competent, the Office will proceed with prosecution.” – Scott Waters, Public Information Officer for the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office
