BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - On Thursday, Aug. 6, a judge in Baton Rouge ruled that alleged serial killer, Kenneth Gleason, is sane enough to stand trial.

EBR District Attorney Hillar Moore says Gleason’s trial is set for April 5, 2021. Judge Beau Higginbotham says the decision comes after two doctors examined Gleason.

Gleason was supposed to go to trial back in April of 2020, but the trial was changed into a sanity hearing.
