Man charged with biting trooper's ear to have treatment

ELYRIA, Ohio - A man accused of biting off part of an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper’s ear has been found currently not competent to stand trial.

A judge in Lorain County this week ordered mental-health treatment for 44-year-old Cornelius Carey Jr. and set a September hearing to reassess his competency for trial.

Carey has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges including assault and resisting arrest. A message was left for Carey’s attorney Friday.
