The gruesome details of how accused murderer Aaron Ramsey bludgeoned and stabbed his father to death were reportedly revealed during the first day of his murder trial in state Superior Court Court in Stamford Tuesday, when the prosecution played a recording of the 911 call he made after allegedly committing the crime.
In the recording, Ramsey tells the 911 dispatcher how he beat Edward Ramsey, 73, of 125 Signal Hill Road, with his hands and a piano bench, before finally cutting his throat with a kitchen knife, according to a report in the Stamford Advocate.
Ramsey also reportedly told the dispatcher how he heard voices in his head telling him to kill his father.
Ramsey is free on $1 million bond — but according to the Advocate report he is undergoing treatment at the Whiting Forensic Division of Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown.
The three judges presiding over the case are to decide whether the 22-year-old was insane due to a medical condition when the murder took place.
If found guilty by reason of insanity, Ramsey will likely undergo psychiatric evaluation and treatment at Whiting or another hospital, according to the report.
Providing his treatment is successful and it is determined Ramsey is no longer a threat to himself or others, he will avoid prison time, according to the report.
