Doc named for Mr. G's arson suspect's mental evaluation

Arson suspect Jonathan Polich will receive his requested evaluation after pleading not guilty to setting Mr. G’s Logan Creek Grille on fire because of a mental defect last month.

 

Arson suspect Jonathan Polich will receive his requested evaluation after pleading not guilty to setting Mr. G’s Logan Creek Grille because of a mental defect last month. Polich appeared in court via teleconference on Thursday after issuing his plea last month. Prosecuting attorney Aleksandra Hodowany and defense attorney Shannon Viel agreed on Wausau-based clinical psychologist Dr. Steven Benson to conduct the mental evaluation. Following his order for Polich’s mental evaluation, Judge D. Todd Ehlers set up a follow-up status conference for March 3rd at 11:30 a.m. 

 

Polich was arrested in early November after the Door County Sheriff’s Office and the Wisconsin State Fire Marshal’s office found evidence that led to an arson investigation. He was charged with two counts of Arson to a dwelling and was placed on a $250,000 bond, which remains in place.
