Grafton Thomas, Guilty of Murder, Shirks Judgment once again

Grafton Thomas, Guilty of Murder, Shirks Judgment once again

Grafton Thomas, the 39-year-old who was indicted for the murder of Josef Neumann in a machete attack, has once again managed to shirk judgment by being considered mentally unfit to stand trial.

Rockland Judge Kevin Russo came to this decision Tuesday which commits him to state for a year and potentially longer if he’s still found mentally incompetent. 

Thomas is guilty of brutally stabbing five people with a machete at a Monsey Chanukah celebration in 2019. The most critically injured victim, Josef Neumann, 72, died three months after the attack. Thomas, who has irrevocably changed the lives of those he attacked that fateful night, is consistently being found mentally unfit to stand trial.
