Carjacking Defendant Sent to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital

A DC Superior Court judge sent a defendant to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, DC psychiatric institution, for a psychological evaluation. 

Andre Fluelly, 20, is charged with unarmed carjacking for allegedly stealing a car on June 17. He is also charged with assault with significant bodily injury in connection with an incident in which Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers found a victim lying on the ground in a puddle of blood on July 19 on the corner of 14th and Irving Street, NW.

Fluelly sat silently during his Aug. 20 hearing as his attorney, Leo Alley, requested that his competency to stand trial be evaluated.

Judge Gerald Fisher granted the motion. 

Fluelly’s next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 31.
