Urged the court

A Clayton County Police detective urged the court to get mental health care for the 24-year-old man charged with murdering his grandfather.

"He needs immediate mental health care," said Detective Steve Rotella. "Attention. Medication. He needs help."

Herbert George Ledford, III, allegedly shot his grandfather in the face and tried to burn down his Panhandle Road home on May 23. While being interviewed by police, he reportedly said his grandfather could have been murdered by "someone in the basement."
