The results of a long-delayed state-ordered psychiatric exam on a man charged with killing a Wesleyan University student will soon be revealed. State’s Attorney Timothy Liston is expected to disclose the results tomorrow in Middletown Superior Court in the case of Stephen Morgan, 31. The Marblehead native is charged with murdering Johanna Justin-Jinich, 21, of Timnath, Colo., at a bookstore cafe near the Middletown campus in May 2009. Prosecutors had to order a second evaluation earlier this year after an expert became ill and couldn’t finish the first review. Morgan’s lawyer is expected to pursue a mental illness defense. Authorities say Justin-Jinich and Morgan met around 2007 at New York University, where she had filed a harassment complaint against him. (AP)
