ITHACA MURDER: Suspect has mental health job history

The man accused of murdering a UPS driver in Ithaca — he now claims he was trying to kill President-elect Donald Trump — has a history working with the New York State Office of Mental Health, officials confirmed Thursday.

Justin Barkley, 38, remains in the Tompkins County jail, awaiting an evaluation about whether he is competent to stand trial, after his unsuccessful attempt Monday to admit guilt in the murder of 52-year-old Candor resident William Schumacher on Dec. 8 outside the Walmart store at 135 Fairgrounds Memorial Parkway in Ithaca.
