UTICA, N.Y. -- The Utica man accused of stabbing his grandmother, then setting her on fire in their West Street apartment last week, waived his felony hearing Monday.

Three Utica police officers and a neighbor were standing by to testify.

Andre Anderon's public defender requested a psychological evaluation before determining whether Anderson was competent to decide whether to waive the hearing, but Utica City Court Judge Ralph Eannace denied that request after asking Anderson a couple of questions.

The case now heads to an Oneida County grand jury.

Anderson was charged with second-degree murder after his grandmother, 68-year-old Freddie McKinney died from her injuries.
