Man charged in beating death of nurse at Froedtert Hospital headed to trial
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The man charged in the murder of a Froedtert Hospital employee back in January went before a judge Monday to learn about his mental fitness to stand trial.
After reviewing a doctor’s note, the judge found Kenneth Freeman to be competent enough to stand trial.
Freeman also waived his preliminary hearing and pleaded not guilty by mental disease. He will be reviewed by a doctor again for a mental evaluation.
Freeman is charged with beating Froedtert Hospital nurse practitioner Carlie Beaudin to death in a parking garage and leaving her for dead.
A mental evaluation was ordered after he had an outburst in court earlier this year and had to be tased.
Freeman is set to stand trial on November 11th.
