An attorney for Carlos Campos-Trinidad Jr. tells The Jersey Journal that he agreed with a judge’s Wednesday ruling that Campos suffers from severe mental illness.

The 24-year-old Campos-Trinidad is charged with three counts of murder and weapons possession for the deaths of 56-year-old Carlos Campos-Trinidad, 58-year-old Ruth Pereira and 3-year-old Gabriella Morales.

Prosecutors say Campos-Trinidad stabbed the victims in August 2011 in the family’s Harrison home, before walking to a nearby police station with blood on him and alerting police.

A judge ordered Campos-Trinidad transferred to a Trenton-area treatment facility.
