If they put him in a mental facility, and at some point he "becomes" sane, doesn't he face trial then? Or shouldn't he?

I believe it's only if they are held up waiting for treatment. If they are found not guilty by reason of insanity then i think it's pretty much a done deal. They get released after treatment.

this nan murdered my uncle and it is the families belief it was premeditated by the information we have. My aunt spent the weekend in Antlers asking everyone to sin our petition and asking for the resignation of Mark Matloff DA

We the family of Garland Cogburn believe in our hearts that we were poorly represented by DA Matloff. Where are the other related charges to the murder of our beloved family member; grand theft auto, forgery, theft of a fire arm. We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts that signed our petition and God bless those of you who declined to do so.

Anybody is crazy for killing a person. when you get mad and lose control you get crazy. I have never knew of a person just to walk up to you and kill ya. I hope they can redo it and send that piece of crap to prison. He knew what he was doing. And i know where Garland lived at and this guy lived in cloudy. So somebody like his wife had to give him a ride to get to his house. And i bet anything he wanted money and garland did not want to give it to him so he killed him. and then drove to texas and wrote checks on him. hmm.that guys dumb butt wife needs to be in jail too.
I so agree

did this guy that kiled the man have a previous history of mental illness. If not then what was how did he suddenly become mentallyill and kill someone? Usuallly a person has a history of previous mental illness in his back groun or a history of mental illness in the family. Usually aperson is evaluatd before a going to trail and then judgement is passed as to whether or not he was mentallly ill. Did the man doing the killing have a history of mental illness or not.

I no that the sentence that this man got for killing your loved one isn't right,and i'am not defending the district attorney who tried to send him to prison.But here is the case they
sent this killer off to a mental facility and found out that he is a sick person,and can not be tried through the court system so as
a result of that he goes to vinta to the nut house for his sentence because he is a danger to society.this decision is made by doctors and the district judge who was hearing the case,the da
did not send him to vinta it was the judge hearing the case.
Two in the chest and one in the head saves the tax payers money
not giving him three square mills a day and a soft bed to sleep in.i agree this killer needs to go away forever.....
two who cares

this kind of thing has happened several times in the past here, murder goes unpunished, drug manufacturing goes unpunished,child molestation goes unpunished,spousal abuse goes unpunished,and all of this can be proved by simply looking at court records of the ones that made thru the cracks at the police and sherrifs departments,not to mention all the unreported,I knew Garland, we used to visit at the cafe, he was a good man, and this should have never happened, better yet, ignorance is not a mental illness, and the man that did this needs to rot in jail, right along with his wife who i garuntee is an accomplis

The DA doesn't decide, the judge on the case does. You need to look to the judge in the case for making a poor decision. The DA presents the evidence, and there was plenty, the judge then tells the DA I'm not trying it, I'm sending him to the nuthouse. All of which can be decided behind closed doors before they ever step into a courtroom. And what about his wife who was involved too? Did they do anything to her? NO. She in the nuthouse? NO. She walked scott free.

The judge didn't get a chance to hear the evidence as the DA accepted a plea deal (Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity) from the defense attorney before the trail started. Before the accused can be released from the mental facility the district judge must sign off on it also.

Doesn't matter if the judge knew the evidence or not. Once the DA and the defense attorney agree on a plea deal, the judge can't just decide he or she doesn't like the plea deal and carry on with a trial.

yeah they can. judge has final say to reject or accept what is presented. she/he could reject their deal and force them to proceed.

And here's some proof from your own mouth. If a judge has to SIGN OFF for him to COME OUT, then the judge has to SIGN OFF for him to go into a mental facility. Think it through.

The more you "SCREAM CORRUPTION" without verifiable evidence, the less people are going to believe you! You have thrown temper tantrams like a little kid so much that nobody around here believes much of what you claim. I've seen posts telling you that you need to go back to Texas. Although Okies are generally more hospitable, when someone moves into our neighborhoods and there are things that doesn't seem just right about our roads or property lines, most people would have friendly talks with those concerned to straighten things out to the satisfaction of all before going to the courthouse! I truly hope you come to the realization someday that everybody but you isn't corrupt, and you can be a happy camper!
