Norristown State Hospital
A deranged former nurse at the Norristown State Hospital was out for revenge.
Joseph McAndrew’s court-appointed guardian says his client should be able to use his mother’s estate, valued at $1 million, to pay for private counsel and expert psychiatrists in his defense.
Montgomery County prosecutors are asking a judge to move 23-year-old Joseph McAndrew out of Norristown State Hospital and back to the county prison while he awaits trial for allegedly killing his parents and twin brother.
Joseph McAndrew Jr., 23, has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he stabbed his mother, his father, and his twin brother to death in their King of Prussia home last March.
