D.C. Superior Court Judge Russell Canan '76 was quoted in The Washingtonian about a Georgetown murder trial. Albrecht Muth is accused of fatally beating his socialite wife in Georgetown.

A follow-up hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in the courtroom of Judge Russell F. Canan, who eventually has to determine if and when the case will proceed. A source at Superior Court said it was uncertain whether Muth would be able to make the hearing.

Canan ordered the competency evaluation following a period of time in which Muth went on and off fasts, jeopardizing his health and landing him at United Medical Center with dehydration. Doctors there said he suffered from "psychosis,” quoting him as claiming his fast was ordered by the archangel Gabriel.
