Russell Neal Claims Insanity In Wife's Murder
Former Hi-Five singer Russell Neal is now in Rusk State Hospital, a mental institution, after claiming insanity in his wife's murder.
Neal beat and stabbed Catherine Martinez to death on June 28, 2014 in their home with their two small sons present.
On July 1, he walked into a police station and informed them he had a fight with his wife. He told them she may need medical attention. When the police arrived at the home, the scene was described as "nightmarish."
The former boy band
singer is now "playing crazy." It appears to be working as he has been found incompetent to stand trial and is now claiming his name is "Jesus Christ."
But, prosecutors aren't buying it and they refuse to drop the charges.
Russell Neal was ordered to continue treatment and has another competency hearing in August 2017.
Would you believe me if I told you, Russell Neal's young brother, Ronald Neal, is also in jail for killing his wife in cold blood six years prior?
