Appeals Court Says Bryan Stanley Should Stay In Hospital

An appeal by Bryan Stanley has been turned down by a Wisconsin appeals court.

The fourth district appeals judges have affirmed a decision by Judge Ramona Gonzalez to keep Stanley at the Mendota institute, for violating terms of his release from the hospital. Stanley was committed by the state after killing a priest and two other men at St. Patrick's Church in Onalaska in 1985. He argued that his failure to report having violent thoughts was not a good enough reason to revoke his release. The same court of appeals had ordered Stanley's release in 2008, after his mental condition had improved.
