Perry Webb of Wheat Road in New Lisbon has been ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial after a judge requested a mental health evaluation. This is similar to the ruling made in the Paul Bumbalo murder case in Utica in 2015.


Webb was arrested in June of 2017 in New Lisbon after sheriff's deputies say he killed a man by stomping him to death and attempted to kill another man the same way.

The Otsego County District Attorney says Webb will likely spend the rest of his life in a psychiatric center.
